from functools import update_wrapper
class reify(object):
""" Use as a class method decorator. It operates almost exactly like the
Python ``@property`` decorator, but it puts the result of the method it
decorates into the instance dict after the first call, effectively
replacing the function it decorates with an instance variable. It is, in
Python parlance, a non-data descriptor. The following is an example and
its usage:
.. doctest::
>>> from pyramid.decorator import reify
>>> class Foo(object):
... @reify
... def jammy(self):
... print('jammy called')
... return 1
>>> f = Foo()
>>> v = f.jammy
jammy called
>>> print(v)
1
>>> f.jammy
1
>>> # jammy func not called the second time; it replaced itself with 1
>>> # Note: reassignment is possible
>>> f.jammy = 2
>>> f.jammy
2
