How to use

from py3njection import inject
from some_package import ClassToInject

class Demo:
    def __init__(self, object_to_use: ClassToInject):
        self.dependency = object_to_use

demo = Demo()

How does it work ?

The decorator @inject looks for any annotated method/function parameters (return annotation excluded).

It creates a new object from the specified class if no object is already provided.

What if I want a singleton ?

class ClassToInject:

That’s it ! When @inject sees a class with this decorator, it always uses the same instance.

Some Notes

  • Unit tests come easy to set up (unless you have too many dependencies, but that would be a code smell, right ?). Just specify mock instances at your object creation. Examples will come later.

  • This also means the injected object could also have some of its members injected too at their initialization !
