Structure of Dependency Injector

Current section describes Dependency Injector main entities and their interaction between each other.


There are 2 main entities: providers & containers.


Providers are strategies of accessing objects. For example, :py:class:`dependency_injector.providers.Factory` creates new instance of provided class every time it is called. :py:class:`dependency_injector.providers.Singleton` creates provided instance once and returns it on every next call. Base class is - :py:class:`dependency_injector.providers.Provider`.

Providers could be:

  • Injected into each other.
  • Overridden by each other.
  • Extended.


Containers are collections of providers. They are used for grouping of providers by some principles. Base class is - :py:class:`dependency_injector.containers.DeclarativeContainer`.

Containers could be:

  • Overridden by each other.
  • Copied from each other.
  • Extended.
