Learn how to wrap callables using Python's decorator syntax.
Decorators allow callables to be expanded or augmented without modifying the original. They're commonly used in web application frameworks for routing, authentication, etc. They're used to parameterize unit tests with pytest. In addition to many other use cases.
This lab introduces decorators through hands-on examples and ends with the chance to practice what you've learned.
- Proficient with:
- The Python runtime
