Build Status

Forbidden Fruit

Forbidden Fruit

This project aims to help you reach heaven while writing tests, but it may lead you to hell if used on production code.

It basically allows you to patch built-in objects, declared in C through python. Just like this:

>>> from forbiddenfruit import curse
>>> def words_of_wisdom(self):
...     return self * "blah "
>>> curse(int, "words_of_wisdom", words_of_wisdom)
>>> assert (2).words_of_wisdom() == "blah blah "

Boom! That's it, your int class now has the words_of_wisdom method. Do you want to add a classmethod to a built-in class? No problem, just do this:

>>> from forbiddenfruit import curse
>>> def hello(self):
...     return "blah"
>>> curse(str, "hello", classmethod(hello))
>>> assert str.hello() == "blah"

Reversing a curse

If you want to free your object from a curse, you can use the reverse() function. Just like this:

>>> from forbiddenfruit import curse, reverse
>>> curse(str, "test", "blah")
>>> assert 'test' in dir(str)
>>> # Time to reverse the curse
>>> reverse(str, "test")
>>> assert 'test' not in dir(str)

Compatibility

Forbidden Fruit runs on all cpython versions I tested so far, which includes the versions 2.5, 2.6, 2.7, 3.2 and 3.3. Since Forbidden Fruit is fundamentally dependent on the C API, this library won't work on other python implementations, such as Jython, pypy, etc.

I might add support for pypy in the future, but It's unlikely that I'll do it for Jython. But I could happily accept patches for them.
