TAPP3: Annotations

Overview

整理下关于PythonType Checking的资料。主要参考realpython.关于Type Checking,这篇文章主要是基于mypy来讲的,另外微软的pyright用着也还可以(还是有Bug...),可以和Vscode一起用。

Annotations

variable, function,和class中均可以使用Annotations.此外有Type Comments可以用为旧版本Python的替代品,不过不太好用,一般只用Annotations

Variable Annotations

pi: float = 3.14

VariableAnnotations被存储在字典__annotations__中。

print(__annotations__)

输出{'pi': <class 'float'>}.

Function Annotations

定义格式如下,

def func(arg: arg_type, optarg: arg_type = default) -> return_type:

示例代码,

def calArea(r: float, pi:float = 3.14):
    return pi * r * r

在函数不返回任何值的时候,使用None

def play(player_name: str) -> None:
    print(f"{player_name} plays")

因为Python是支持Gradual typing的,所以如果函数不返回任何值,这里是可以不写返回值的。不同的是,不写返回值的时候,ret_val = play("Henrik")是被mypy允许的,而上面的写返回值为None的时候,ret_val = play("Henrik")是不被允许的——error: "play" does not return a value

Class: Type Hints for Methods

class Card:
    SUITS = "♠ ♡ ♢ ♣".split()
    RANKS = "2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 J Q K A".split()

    def __init__(self, suit: str, rank: str) -> None:
        self.suit = suit
        self.rank = rank

    def __repr__(self) -> str:
        return f"{self.suit}{self.rank}"

Composite Types&Type Aliases

对于简单的变量类型,我们可以直接使用内置的类型,

name: str = "Guido"
pi: float = 3.142
centered: bool = False

也可以进行依据内置的类型进行复合,

names: list = ["Guido", "Jukka", "Ivan"]
version: tuple = (3, 7, 1)
options: dict = {"centered": False, "capitalize": True}

但是这种写法存在问题,通过Annotations,可以直接推断出names是一个list,但是对于names[0]的类型,并不能通过Annotations知道(因为在Python中做Type Checking大部分不是在运行时进行的,所以我们无从知道names[0]的类型,换言之,我们能且只能通过Annotations来获取变量的类型)。

这就引出了下面的用法,即依靠typing库的内置类型,

from typing import Dict, List, Tuple

names: List[str] = ["Guido", "Jukka", "Ivan"]
version: Tuple[int, int, int] = (3, 7, 1)
options: Dict[str, bool] = {"centered": False, "capitalize": True}

如此,我们可以得到:

namesstr组成的list version是三个int组成的tuple optionskeystrvaluebooldict

比如在后面Example段中将要提到的扑克牌(格式♠8)的例子就是利用上述类型,

def create_deck(shuffle: bool = False) -> List[Tuple[str, str]]:
    """Create a new deck of 52 cards"""
    deck = [(s, r) for r in RANKS for s in SUITS]
    if shuffle:
        random.shuffle(deck)
    return deck

观察上面的代码我们也可以发现一个问题,List[Tuple[str, str]]已经变的复杂,不仅其实际代表的数据结构的含义被掩盖,我们后面将此类型的参数传入函数的时候,其Annotations也会变得冗长,如,

def deal_hands(
    deck: List[Tuple[str, str]]
) -> Tuple[
    List[Tuple[str, str]],
    List[Tuple[str, str]],
    List[Tuple[str, str]],
    List[Tuple[str, str]],
]:
    """Deal the cards in the deck into four hands"""
    return (deck[0::4], deck[1::4], deck[2::4], deck[3::4])

于是就有了Type Alias的引入,

from typing import List, Tuple

Card = Tuple[str, str]
Deck = List[Card]

def deal_hands(deck: Deck) -> Tuple[Deck, Deck, Deck, Deck]:
    """Deal the cards in the deck into four hands"""
    return (deck[0::4], deck[1::4], deck[2::4], deck[3::4])

如此,我们不但简化了Annotations的编写,也使得代码逻辑更容易理解。

Special Types: Any&Type Variables

考虑如下函数,

import random
from typing import Any, Sequence

def choose(items: Sequence[Any]) -> Any:
    return random.choice(items)

Why Sequence: In many cases your functions will expect some kind of sequence, and not really care whether it is a list or a tuple.

这里,我们的意图是:使用choose函数从一个Sequence中任取一个值并返回,因为我们不关心Sequence中元素的类型,所以使用Any,代表任意类型。我们是想要其返回元素的类型与输入的Sequence元素的类型是一致的(在使用Any的情况下),但实际上并非如此——这里函数返回值丢失了原来Sequence中的元素类型,看下面的例子,

# choose.py
import random
from typing import Any, Sequence

def choose(items: Sequence[Any]) -> Any:
    return random.choice(items)

names = ["Guido", "Jukka", "Ivan"]
reveal_type(names)

name = choose(names)
reveal_type(name)

运行mypy choose.py

choose.py:10: error: Revealed type is 'builtins.list[builtins.str*]' choose.py:13: error: Revealed type is 'Any',可以看到原来元素为str,现在已经丢失为Any类型。

为解决此问题,我们引入了Type Variables

import random
from typing import Sequence, TypeVar

Choosable = TypeVar("Chooseable")

def choose(items: Sequence[Choosable]) -> Choosable:
    return random.choice(items)

names = ["Guido", "Jukka", "Ivan"]
reveal_type(names)

name = choose(names)
reveal_type(name)
运行mypy choose.py

choose.py:12: error: Revealed type is 'builtins.list[builtins.str]' choose.py:15: error: Revealed type is 'builtins.str'

此外,我们也可以进一步地限制Type Variables的可选类型范围,

Choosable = TypeVar("Choosable", str, float)

Example: A Deck of Cards
