Overriding of providers
.. currentmodule:: dependency_injector.providers
Every provider could be overridden by another provider.
This gives opportunity to make system behaviour more flexible at some point. The main feature is that while your code is using providers, it depends on providers, but not on the objects that providers provide. As a result of this, you can change providing by provider object to a different one, but still compatible one, without chaning your previously written code.
Provider overriding functionality has such interface:
- :py:meth:`Provider.override()` - takes another provider that will be used instead of current provider. This method could be called several times. In such case, last passed provider would be used as overriding one.
- :py:meth:`Provider.reset_override()` - resets all overriding providers. Provider starts to behave itself like usual.
- :py:meth:`Provider.reset_last_overriding()` - remove last overriding provider from stack of overriding providers.
