Undecorate python functions, methods or classes

Project description

This library provides an easy way to strip a function of its decorators.

Tested on python 2.6 up to 3.6: travis



$ pip install undecorated

Try it on one of your functions:

>>> from undecorated import undecorated
>>> undecorated(my_decorated_function)
<function my_decorated_function at 0x7fbdd6e95938>

undecorated has returned your original function clean of any decorators.

It also works with class decorators!


>>> from functools import wraps
>>> from undecorated import undecorated
>>> def decorate_with(*decorations):
...     def decorator(f):
...         @wraps(f)
...         def wrapper(*args, **kwargs):
...             print decorations
...             return f(*args, **kwargs)
...         return wrapper
...     return decorator
>>> @decorate_with('yellow_bauble')
... @decorate_with('red_bauble')
... @decorate_with('tinsel')
... def tree():
...     print 'tree'
>>> tree()
>>> undecorated(tree)()
