Installation
------------

Install python-doc-inherit:

.. code-block:: bash

pip install python-doc-inherit

Usage
-----

Simple method decorator (will cause other decorators to fail)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

.. code-block:: python

from doc_inherit import method_doc_inherit

class Foo(object):

def foo(self):
"""Frobber"""

pass

class Bar(Foo):

@method_doc_inherit
def foo(self):
pass

Now, ``Bar.foo.__doc__ == Bar().foo.__doc__ == Foo.foo.__doc__ == "Frobber"``


Simple class decorator
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

.. code-block:: python

from doc_inherit import class_doc_inherit

class Foo(object):

def foo(self):
"""Frobber"""

pass

@class_doc_inherit
class Bar(Foo):

def foo(self):
pass

Now, ``Bar.foo.__doc__ == Bar().foo.__doc__ == Foo.foo.__doc__ == "Frobber"``


Metaclass
~~~~~~~~~

.. code-block:: python

from doc_inherit.metaclasses import DocStringInheritor
from six import add_metaclass # Note: Six is not included in this distribution.

class Animal:
def move_to(self, dest):
"""Move to *dest*"""
pass

@add_metaclass(DocStringInheritor)
class Bird(Animal):
def move_to(self, dest):
pass

Now, ``Animal.move_to.__doc__ == Bird.move_to.__doc__ == "Move to *dest*"``


Running the Tests
------------------

.. code-block:: bash

pip install -r requirements/test.txt
./runtests.py
