Python typing compatibility library

Project description


Python typing compatibility library

In Python >=3.8 the typing.get_origin and typing.get_args functions are provided. This library aims to bring the identical behaviour of these functions to other versions of Python.

Getting started

pip install typing-compat


>>> from typing import List, Tuple, TypeVar
>>> from typing_compat import get_args, get_origin
>>> T = TypeVar('T')

>>> tp = List[Tuple[T, T]][int]

>>> get_args(tp)
(typing.Tuple[int, int],)

>>> get_origin(tp)
<class 'list'>


This library is licensed under either of

at your option.
