Fits JSON values into Python type-anotated objects

Project description


Read the Docs Build Status LGTM Grade

Typing annotations make Python awesome, however it's complicated to keep your data annotated when it comes from external sources like APIs. The goal of Typefit is to help you map that external data into type-annotated native Python objects.

from typefit import api
from typing import NamedTuple, Text

class Item(NamedTuple):
    id: int
    title: Text

class HackerNews(api.SyncClient):
    BASE_URL = ""

    def get_item(self, item_id: int) -> Item:

story = HackerNews().get_item(42)
# An alternative to VC: "Selling In"

This is the full example of a Hacker News API client. Its functionality is limited but in 14 lines counting white space you can build a type-safe client for Hacker News. You'll find a full example attached if you're interested.
