An ugly pseudo solution for using switches in python.


pip install ugly_switch


from ugly_switch import switch

A Switch can be used once:

    True, door_lock,
    False, door_unlock
](not door_state)

# looks the door when it's state is False and vice versa

or can be stored to be used multiple times in the future:

s = switch[
    'a', lambda: print('was a'),
    'b', lambda: print('was b')

# some stuff

value = 'a'

# OUT: "was a"

When the number of args in the switch is even, the pairs make up the switch as sets of cases and actions. actions must be callable methods or lambdas. If the number of args may be odd, the last item will be used as default, expecting it to be a callable.

With the example directly above, nothing will happen, if value happens to be neither 'a' nor 'b'.

Below it has a default action.

value = 'c'
s = switch[
    'a', lambda: print('was a'),
    'b', lambda: print('was b'),
    lambda: print('something else')

# some stuff


# OUT: "something else"
