I had been working on this same problem intermittently for several months, so thanks, but...
error: Invariant type variable 'AnyStr' used in protocol where
covariant one is expected
is called out on the class by mypy 0.630 (Python 3.6.6). Do I just need to wait for 0.640? Or should I define a new TypeVar for AnyStr_co and use that?
Hm, it looks like mypy overreacts here. I think it should be safe to use a constrained type variable if there are no constraints that are subtypes of other constraints (which is the case for AnyStr on Python 3, where bytes is not a subtype of str). Could you please open an issue about this on mypy tracker? In the meantime, you can just silence the error with a `# type: ignore`.
