Pointfree style toolkit for Python

Project Description

pointfree is a small module that makes certain functional programming constructs more convenient to use in Python.

Specifically, it provides:

  • A decorator to enable automatic partial application of functions and methods.
  • Notations for function composition through operator overloading.
  • Helper functions to make composing generators more elegant.

The objective is to support the pointfree programming style in a lightweight and easy to use manner – and in particular, to serve as a nice syntax for the kind of generator pipelines described in David Beazley’s PyCon 2008 presentation, “Generator Tricks for Systems Programmers”.
