Automatically log all new subclasses of a specified base class.

Project description

Documentation Status


This library implements a simple clas decorator that you can apply to a base class. This decorator then hooks into the way the decorated class is subclassed, adding all new subclasses to a dictionary whose keys are class names and values are the classes themselves.

The motivation for this project was to autogenerate deep learning models from pure JSON files, thus ensuring reproducibility of the results. I do, however, think that it is ideal for any kind of codebase where we want to generate safe code from configuration files.

Installation instructions

The subclass register can be installed with pip:

pip install subclass-register

by cloning this repo and running

git clone https:\\\yngvem\subclass-register
cd subclass-register

or by simply downloading the src\subclass_register\ file and the LISENCE file into your project.


Here is a basic example of how to use the subclass register.

from subclass_register import SubclassRegister

register = SubclassRegister('car')

class BaseCar:

class SUV(BaseCar):
    def __init__(self, horse_powers):
        self.horse_powers = horse_powers

suv = register['SUV'](horse_powers = 50)

You can read more examples at the documentation page.
