Hi, I once tried something to emulate in python the way Scala language
allows to automatically generate class attributes from constructor
parameter. I never tried in real code, but see if it fits your bill.
It uses class decorators though, so only works with python3. Here is
"""It adds a generic scala-like constructor to a class.
You can create as instance as c = MyClass(f1=3, f2=4)
and have automatically c.f1=3, c.f2=4.
Only parameter names listed in the decorator are allowed.
def __init__(self, *names):
self.names = names
def __call__(self, cls):
def constructor(instance, **kwds):
for n,v in kwds.items():
if n in self.names:
setattr(instance, n, v)
else: raise TypeError("%s is not a valid field" % s )
setattr(cls, '__init__', constructor )
p = Prova(uno=12, due=9)
print (p.uno, p.due )
