Hello World with Scake

First, let's define the settings in YAML format.


    hello_message: "Hello World!"

        message: =/my_settings/hello_message
    result(): __call__

In the above settings, we define the "hello_message" component holding our message: "Hello World!". The reference to it is "=/my_settings/hello_message" (very similar to file path system), first character "=" is annotation for component reference.

At the "printer" component, we initialize an instance of class "MyPrinter" (annotated by $MyPrinter) and pass the message content to its constructor. After initializing instance successfully, Scake will execute the "call" function and assign the result to component at "/printer/result()". Open and close parenthesis annotates a method component in Scake.

# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-
import sys
import yaml
from scake import Scake

class MyPrinter:
    def __init__(self, message):
        self.message = message

    def __call__(self):

def main(yaml_path):
    with open(yaml_path) as f:
        config = yaml.safe_load(f)
    s = Scake(config, class_mapping=globals())

if __name__ == "__main__":

Run the following command for your first "Hello World!":

$ python3
Hello World!


  • [ ] Design logo for Scake.
  • [ ] Write documentation & tutorials for Scake.
  • [ ] Support "requirements.txt" in settings. Installing Python packages on-the-fly.
  • [ ] Support loop in settings.
  • [ ] Support flow reference (connect multiple settings files together).
  • [ ] Support integration tests (try as friendly as possible).
  • [ ] Support generating class templates (> scake /path/to/settings.yaml).
  • [ ] Import custom packages automatically by defining in the settings file.
  • [ ] Setting element inherit / override.

Far future plan:

  • [ ] Packaging scake with Cython.
  • [ ] Packaging scake to a library or executable binary.
  • [ ] Scake server for listening file changes and update code flow status (ok or error) in real-time.
  • [ ] Scake component on the cloud. Be able to reference a scake component by URL @ specific version.
  • [ ] Interactive IDE for designing a settings fully compatible to Scake.



  • Object attribute reference in YAML settings
  • Fix bug: similar keys in settings


  • Big refactoring in how we do initializing instances and executing code flow
  • Remove generating class templates based on YAML


  • Automatically initialize Class instances from YAML description.
  • Code flow is built and executed properly by checking attribute dependencies.
  • Generate class templates based on YAML description.


  • Step 1. Fork on dev branch.
  • Step 2. Install pre-commit on the local dev environment.
pip install pre-commit
pre-commit install
  • Step 3. Write test case(s) for the new feature or the bug.
  • Step 4. Write code to pass the tests.
  • Step 5. Make sure that the new code passes all the pre-commmit conditions.
pre-commit run -a
  • Step 6. Create pull request.
