Backport of PEP 562.

PEP 562

Overview

A backport of PEP 562. Allows controlling a module's __dir__ and __getattr__. Useful for deprecating attributes. Works for Python 2.7+. And while it works on Python 3.7, it is recommended to use the official Python 3.7 implementation where applicable.

This module can be installed and used as a dependency, or if desired, it is easy to vendor as the license is quite permissible, and the code is contained in a single file.

Install

Installation is done with pip:

pip install pep562

Vendoring

Simply copy the file pep562/__init__.py to your project and rename to pep562. Import and use as needed.

Usage

Here is a simple example where we deprecate the attribute version for the more standardized __version__.

from pep562 import Pep562
import sys
import warnings

__version__ = (1, 0, 0)
__all__ = ("__version__",)
__deprecated__ = {
    "version": ("__version__", __version__)
}

PY37 = sys.version_info >= (3, 7)


def __getattr__(name):
    """Get attribute."""

    deprecated = __deprecated__.get(name)
    if deprecated:
        stacklevel = 3 if PY37 else 4
        warnings.warn(
            "'{}' is deprecated. Use '{}' instead.".format(name, deprecated[0]),
            category=DeprecationWarning,
            stacklevel=stacklevel
        )
        return deprecated[1]
    raise AttributeError("module '{}' has no attribute '{}'".format(__name__, name))


def __dir__():
    """Module directory."""

    return sorted(list(__all__) + list(__deprecated__.keys()))


if not PY37:
    Pep562(__name__)
