Python 3.x super() in 2.x

Project description

Intro

newsuper provides you Python 3.x super() in 2.x

Why

you must hate to write code like this:

super(Foo, self).__init__()

and you might have written (WRONG) code like this:

super(self.__class__, self).__init__()

Python 3.x’s super() saves your ass:

super().__init__()

YOU WANT IT IN 2.X!

Example

Simply make your topest-level class inherited from newsuper.Object

from newsuper import Object

class Foo(Object):
    def __init__(self):
        self.foo = 1

    @classmethod
    def do_something_with_class(cls):
        return [cls, 'Foo']

    @staticmethod
    def do_something_static():
        return ['Foo']

class Bar(Foo):
    def __init__(self):
        super().__init__()
        self.bar = 1

    @classmethod
    def do_something_static(cls):
        return super().do_something_static() + ['Bar']

class Baz(Bar):
    def __init__(self):
        super().__init__()
        self.baz = 1

    @classmethod
    def do_something_with_class(cls):
        # Compatible with old super(Baz, cls)
        return super(Baz, cls).do_something_with_class() + ['Baz']

    @staticmethod
    def do_something_static():
        # Yes, you can even super a staticmethod!
        return super().do_something_static() + ['Baz']

if __name__ == '__main__':
    assert Baz().foo == Baz().bar == Baz().baz == 1
    assert Baz.do_something_with_class() == [Baz, 'Foo', 'Baz']
    assert Baz.do_something_static() == ['Foo', 'Bar', 'Baz']

property is supported too.
