Utility functions for monkey-patching python code
python-monkey-business is a package that provides a decorator for monkey-patching python functions at runtime.
pip install python-monkey-business
Or, to install from source:
pip install -e git+https://github.com/theatlantic/python-monkey-business.git#egg=python-monkey-business
If the source is already checked out, use setuptools:
python setup.py develop
To use python-monkey-business to swap out a function in a class or module at runtime:
import monkeybiz from foomodule import FooClass import barmodule # This replaces FooClass.bar with our method @monkeybiz.patch(FooClass) def bar(original_fn, *args, **kwargs): print "Patched!" return original_fn(*args, **kwargs) # This replaces barmodule.baz with our function @monkeybiz.patch(barmodule) def baz(original_fn, *args, **kwargs): #...
The first argument to monkeybiz.patch can be either a module, a class, or a list of modules and/or classes. The decorator also takes optional name and avoid_doublewrap keyword arguments. If name is omitted, the name of the function being patched will be the name of the function being decorated. If avoid_doublewrap is True (the default), then functions and methods can only be patched once using this function.
Use monkeybiz.unpatch() to revert a monkey-patched function to its original.
