Usage
=====
Checking optional/positional arguments and auto documenting at the same time
.. warning::
The documentation relies on your talent for naming your functions, and having sensible names.
Example by using some currying, the purpose is to achieve auto documentation
and validation so that::
>>> @set_default_kw_value(port=1026,nawak=123)
>>> @must_have_key("name")
>>> @min_positional(2)
>>> @validate(name = naming_convention(), port = in_range(1024,1030 ))
>>> def toto(*a,**kw):
... """useless fonction"""
... print a
... print kw
... print "done"
... return 1
gives this results::
>>> help(toto)
... Help on function toto in module __main__:
...
... toto(*a, **kw)
... useless fonction
...
... **kewords must validate the following rules**:
...
... * key: <port> must belong to [ 1024, 1030 [,
... * key: <name> must begin with underscore
...
... **at_least_n_positional** :2
...
...
... **keyword_must_contain_key** :name
...
...
... **default_kw_value** :
...
... * params: port is 1026,
... * params: nawak is 123
Use
===
To create a decorator that will be called *before* the called functions and which
names and arguments will enhance the documentation as in the following example just do::
>>> set_default_kw_value = valid_and_doc(default_kw_value)
>>> min_positional = valid_and_doc(at_least_n_positional)
You can provide a default template for the documention as a second argument::
>>> def in_range(low,high):
... def _in_range(_int):
... return high >= _int > low
... _in_range.__doc__ = """belong to [ %s, %s [""" % (low, high)
... return _in_range
...
>>> def _validate(**validator):
... def wrap(**validator):
... def rewrapped(*a,**kw):
... for key,valid in validator.items():
... if key in kw and not valid(kw[key]):
... raise Exception(
... "Key <%s> does not match rule %s" % (
... key,default_doc_maker(
... valid,**{ key: kw[key]}
... ) ) )
... return rewrapped
...
... def validate_doc(_validate, **validator):
... return """
...
... **kewords must validate the following rules**:
...
... %s
... """ % ( ",\n".join(
... "* key: <%s> must %s" % (
... key, valid.__doc__ is not None and valid.__doc__ or valid.__name__
... ) for key, valid in validator.items()
... ) )
... return [ wrap, validate_doc ]
...
>>> validate = valid_and_doc(*_validate())
