A simple way to inject composition through inheritance syntax.

# PyCompose

A simple way to inject composition through inheritance syntax.

## Inspirations

The following links served as inpiration during the writing of this, and as a in-depth explanation of what actually is composition and its benefits and drawbacks versus inheritance.

## Explanation

From the inspirations one can easily see that an older implementation of compositional forwarding exists (forwardable) so why would I do this to myself? In short, I didn't like the syntax introduced by it. I find the syntax provided by this implementation a bit easier to understand as I find adding things that related to properties of a class inside the brackets in the class statement the most logical.

## Usage

from pycompose import Compose

class A:
test1 = "123"

def hello(self):
print("A")

def __repr__(self):
return "<A>"

class B:
test2 = "456"

def hello(self):
print("B")

def __repr__(self):
return "<B>"

class C(
Compose(A, "test1", ("hello", "helloA")),
Compose(B, "test2", ("hello", "helloB"), name="b_object"),
):
...

c = C()
print(c.test1 + c.test2)  # > 123456
c.helloA()                # > A
c.helloB()                # > B
print(c._a, c.b_object)   # > <A> <B>


## Disclaimer

Please do note that this project is but a small abstraction for something that can easily be achieved only a few more lines of hand written code. As such I am aware of the fact that this may seem pretty useless to some people. MIT License
