constant2 0.0.6

provide extensive way of managing your constant variable.

Welcome to constant2 Documentation

If you have lots of constant2 value widely used across your development. A better way is to define Constantant Variable rather than using the raw value. This can improve the readability.

constant2 is a library provide extensive way of managing your constant2 variable.

Example

from constant2 import Constant

class Food(Constant):

    class Fruit:
        id = 1
        name = "fruit"

        class Apple:
            id = 1
            name = "apple"

            class RedApple:
                id = 1
                name = "red apple"

            class GreenApple:
                id = 2
                name = "green apple"

        class Banana:
            id = 2
            name = "banana"

            class YellowBanana:
                id = 1
                name = "yellow banana"

            class GreenBanana:
                id = 2
                name = "green banana"

    class Meat:
        id = 2
        name = "meat"

        class Pork:
            id = 1
            name = "pork"

        class Beef:
            id = 2
            name = "beef"

food = Food()

You can visit it’s data or child class data in these way:

# Use class
>>> Fruit.Items() # .Items() return it's data
[('id', 1), ('name', 'fruit')]

>>> Fruit.Keys() # .Keys() return keys
['id', 'name']

>>> Fruit.Values() # .Values() return values
[1, 'fruit']

>>> Fruit.ToDict() # return data in a dict
{'id': 1, 'name': 'fruit'}

# use instance
>>> food.items() # .Items() return it's data
[('id', 1), ('name', 'fruit')]

>>> food.keys() # .keys() return keys
['id', 'name']

>>> food.values() # .values() return values
[1, 'fruit']

>>> food.to_dict() # return data in a dict
{'id': 1, 'name': 'fruit'}

# iterate on all nested class
>>> Fruit.Subclasses(sort_by='id')
[class Apple, class Banana]

# get first nested class that kls.id == 1
# useful when you need reverse lookup
>>> Fruit.GetFirst('id', 1)
class Apple

# get all child class that kls.id == 1
>>> Fruit.GetAll('id', 1)
[class Apple, ]

And it provides built-in I/O methods allow you to dump these data in to a dictionary.

>>> data = Food.dump()
>>> data
{
    "Food": {
        "Fruit": {
            "Apple": {
                "GreenApple": {

                },
                "RedApple": {

                },

                "id": 1,

            },
            "Banana": {
                "GreenBanana": {

                    "name": "green banana"
                },
                "YellowBanana": {
                    "__classname__": "YellowBanana",
                    "id": 1,
                    "name": "yellow banana"
                },
                "__classname__": "Banana",
                "id": 2,
                "name": "banana"
            },
            "__classname__": "Fruit",
            "id": 1,
            "name": "fruit"
        },
        "Meat": {
            "Beef": {
                "__classname__": "Beef",
                "id": 2,
                "name": "beef"
            },
            "Pork": {
                "__classname__": "Pork",
                "id": 1,
                "name": "pork"
            },
            "__classname__": "Meat",
            "id": 2,
            "name": "meat"
        },
        "__classname__": "Food"
    }
}
