Zope hookable

Project description


Latest release Supported Python versions Documentation Status

This package supports the efficient creation of “hookable” objects, which are callable objects that are meant to be optionally replaced.

The idea is that you create a function that does some default thing and make it hookable. Later, someone can modify what it does by calling its sethook method and changing its implementation. All users of the function, including those that imported it, will see the change.
