python-traits4 – Manifest typing and reactive programming for Python

The traits package provides a metaclass with special attributes that are called traits. A trait is a type definition that can be used for normal Python object attributes, giving the attributes some additional characteristics:

  • Initialization: A trait attribute can have a default value
  • Validation: A trait attribute is manifestly typed.
  • Delegation: The value of a trait attribute can be contained in another object
  • Notification: Setting the value of a trait attribute can fired callbacks
  • Visualization: With the TraitsUI package, GUIs can be generated automatically from traited objects.
