exopy.tasks.tasks.task_interface module

Definition of the base classes for interfaces in tasks.

exopy.tasks.tasks.task_interface.DEP_TYPE = 'exopy.tasks.interface'

Id used to identify dependencies type.

class exopy.tasks.tasks.task_interface.InterfaceableMixin[source]

Bases: atom.atom.Atom

Base class for mixin used to fabricate interfaceable task or interface.

This class should not be used directly, use one of its subclass.

interface

A reference to the current interface for the task.

check(*args, **kwargs)[source]

Check the interface.

This run the checks of the next parent class in the mro and check if a valid interface (real or default one) exists.

prepare()[source]

Prepare both the task and the interface.

perform(*args, **kwargs)[source]

Implementation of perform relying on interfaces.

This method will be considered as the true perform method of the task, it will either call the interface perform method or the special i_perform method if there is no interface. This is meant to provide an easy way to turn a non-interfaced task into an interfaced one : - add the mixin as the left most inherited class - rename the perform method to i_perform - create new interfaces but keep the default ‘standard’ behaviour.

NEVER OVERRIDE IT IN SUBCLASSES OTHERWISE YOU WILL BREAK THE INTERFACE SYSTEM.

traverse(depth=-1)[source]

First yield self then interface and finally next values.

classmethod build_from_config(config, dependencies)[source]

Create a new instance using the provided infos for initialisation.

Parameters
  • config (dict(str)) – Dictionary holding the new values to give to the members in string format, or dictionnary like for instance with prefs.

  • dependencies (dict) – Dictionary holding the necessary classes needed when rebuilding. This is assembled by the TaskManager.

Returns

task – Newly built task.

Return type

BaseTask

get_error_path()[source]

Build the path to use when reporting errors during checks.

class exopy.tasks.tasks.task_interface.InterfaceableTaskMixin[source]

Bases: exopy.tasks.tasks.task_interface.InterfaceableMixin

Mixin class for defining a task using interfaces.

When defining a new interfaceable task this mixin should always be the letf most class when defining the inheritance. This is due to the Python Method Resolution Order (mro) and the fact that this mixin must override methods defined in tasks. ex : MyTaskI(InterfaceableTaskMixin, MyTask):

register_preferences()[source]

Register the task preferences into the preferences system.

update_preferences_from_members()[source]

Update the values stored in the preference system.

get_error_path()[source]

Build the path to use when reporting errors during checks.

interface

A Typed which delays resolving the type definition.

The first time the value is accessed or modified, the type will be resolved and the forward typed will behave identically to a normal typed.

class exopy.tasks.tasks.task_interface.InterfaceableInterfaceMixin[source]

Bases: exopy.tasks.tasks.task_interface.InterfaceableMixin

Mixin class for defining an interface using interfaces.

When defining a new interfaceable task this mixin should always be the letf most class when defining the inheritance. This is due to the Python Method Resolution Order (mro) and the fact that this mixin must override methods defined in tasks. ex : MyInterface(InterfaceableTaskMixin, Interface):

get_error_path()[source]

Build the path to use when reporting errors during checks.

preferences_from_members()[source]

Update the values stored in the preference system.

interface

A Typed which delays resolving the type definition.

The first time the value is accessed or modified, the type will be resolved and the forward typed will behave identically to a normal typed.

class exopy.tasks.tasks.task_interface.BaseInterface[source]

Bases: exopy.utils.atom_util.HasPrefAtom

Base class to use for interfaces.

The interface should not re-use member names used by the task to avoid issue when walking.

This class should not be used directly, use one of its subclass.

dep_type

Identifier for the build dependency collector

interface_id

A value of type unicode.

By default, plain strings will be promoted to unicode strings. Pass strict=True to the constructor to enable strict unicode checking.

database_entries

Dict of database entries added by the interface.

check(*args, **kwargs)[source]

Check that everything is alright before starting a measurement.

By default tries to format all members tagged with ‘fmt’ and try to eval all members tagged with ‘feval’. If the tag value is ‘Warn’, the test will considered passed but a traceback entry will be filled.

prepare()[source]

Prepare the interface to be performed.

This method is called once by the parent task before starting the execution.

perform(*args, **kwargs)[source]

Method called by the parent perform method.

traverse(depth=-1)[source]

Method used by to retrieve information about a task.

Parameters

depth (int) – How deep should we stop traversing.

classmethod build_from_config(config, dependencies)[source]

Create an interface using the provided dict.

class exopy.tasks.tasks.task_interface.TaskInterface[source]

Bases: exopy.tasks.tasks.task_interface.BaseInterface

Base class to use when writing a task interface.

The interface should not re-use member names used by the task to avoid issue when walking.

task

A reference to the task to which this interface is linked.

class exopy.tasks.tasks.task_interface.IInterface[source]

Bases: exopy.tasks.tasks.task_interface.BaseInterface

Base class to use when writing an interface interface.

The interface should not re-use member names used by the task or parent interfaces to avoid issue when walking.

parent

A reference to the parent interface to which this interface is linked.

task

Direct access to the task, which acts as a root parent.
