Helpers for creation of nicer repr() and str().

Project Description

This module exposes a few functions and a class decorator to make the task of writing __repr__() and __str__() for custom classes much easier. It will display a list of nicely formatted (attr, val) pairs with custmizable separator and formatting for each pair.

Let’s look at an example:

from rr import pretty

class foo(object):
    __str__ = pretty.str
    __repr__ = pretty.repr
    __info__ = pretty.info(["x", "y", "z"])

    def __init__(self, x, y, z):
        self.x = x
        self.y = y
        self.z = z

f = foo(1, 2, 3)
print repr(f)  # see for yourself :)
print str(f)

Now, let’s do the same, only this time we’ll use the klass() class decorator:

from rr import pretty

@pretty.klass
class foo(object):
    def __init__(self, x, y, z):
        self.x = x
        self.y = y
        self.z = z

f = foo(1, 2, 3)
print repr(f)  # see for yourself :)
print str(f)

We even left out the attribute list, and pretty.info() (which is what pretty.klass() uses behind the scenes) builds it for us. That’s it! You get nice __repr__() and __str__() methods for free.
