ctx - A minimal but opinionated dict/object combo (like Bunch).

https://travis-ci.org/figlief/ctx.png?branch=master

Requirements

The ctx module should work with all versions of Python.

Features

The ctx module provides the Ctx class which is a subclass of the python 'dict' object.

Ctx modifies 'dict' in the following ways:

1 The dictionary items can be read or set using attribute access notation.

'ctx.a' is identical to 'ctx["a"]' and 'ctx.a = 5' is identical to 'ctx["a"] = 5'

2 The objects attributes can be read using item access notation.

'ctx["__doc__"]' is identical to 'ctx.__doc__'

3 The objects attributes can not be set under any circumstances.

4 The dictionary can not have a key with the same name as an objects attribute.

'ctx.name' and 'ctx["name"]' are resolved using the following three steps.

  1. if the object has an attribute 'name' then return the attribute.

b) if the dictionary has a key 'name' then return the value associated with the key.

  1. raise LookupError.

'ctx.name = 5' and 'ctx["name"] = 5'

  1. If name is an attribute of the class then raise AttributeError.
  2. set the dictionary item as usual.

Installation

You can install this package using pip with the following command.

pip install ctx
