Project description

paragraphs

Incorporate long strings painlessly, beautifully into Python code.

Examples

Easily edited, gq-able, fill-paragraph-able, comprehensive error messages.

from paragraphs import par

class SuddenDeathError(Exception):
    def __init__(self, cause: str) -> None:
        self.cause = cause

    def __str__(self):
        return par(
            f"""
            Y - e - e - e - es, Lord love you! Why should she die of
            {self.cause}? She come through diphtheria right enough the year
            before.I saw her with my own eyes.Fairly blue with it, she was.They
            all thought she was dead; but my father he kept ladling gin down
            her throat til she came to so sudden that she bit the bowl off the
            spoon. 

            What call would a woman with that strength in her have to die of
            {self.cause}?  What become of her new straw hat that should have
            come to me? Somebody pinched it; and what I say is, them as pinched
            it done her in."""
