Expand description

Designation of a Python type.

This enum is used to handle advanced types, such as types with generics. Its Display implementation can be used to convert to the type hint notation (e.g. List[int]).




The type typing.Any, which represents any possible value (unknown type).



The type typing.None.



The type typing.NoReturn, which represents functions that never return (they can still panic / throw, similar to never in Rust).


Callable(Option<Vec<TypeInfo>>, Box<TypeInfo>)

The type typing.Callable.

The first argument represents the parameters of the callable:

  • Some of a vector of types to represent the signature,
  • None if the signature is unknown (allows any number of arguments with type Any).

The second argument represents the return type.



The type typing.tuple.

The argument represents the contents of the tuple:

  • Some of a vector of types to represent the accepted types,
  • Some of an empty vector for the empty tuple,
  • None if the number and type of accepted values is unknown.

If the number of accepted values is unknown, but their type is, use Self::UnsizedTypedTuple.



The type typing.Tuple.

Use this variant to represent a tuple of unknown size but of known types.

If the type is unknown, or if the number of elements is known, use Self::Tuple.




§module: ModuleName

The module this class comes from.

§name: Cow<'static, str>

The name of this class, as it appears in a type hint.

§type_vars: Vec<TypeInfo>

The generics accepted by this class (empty vector if this class is not generic).

A Python class.


Returns the module in which a type is declared.

Returns None if the type is declared in the current module.

Returns the name of a type.

The name of a type is the part of the hint that is not generic (e.g. List instead of List[int]).

The Python Optional type.

The Python Union type.

The Python List type.

The Python Sequence type.

The Python Set type.

The Python FrozenSet type.

The Python Iterable type.

The Python Iterator type.

The Python Dict type.

The Python Mapping type.

Convenience factory for non-generic builtins (e.g. int).

This method tests for self and other values to be equal, and is used by ==.
This method tests for !=. The default implementation is almost always sufficient, and should not be overridden without very good reason.
