Code generation in Python

Anand S (~anand40)




This talk explores the techniques and applications of code parsing, code refactoring and code generation.

Python interpreters can read and rewrite Python code. That means you can write a program that takes this function:

def increment(value):
    return value + 1

and replace it with a more generic:

def increment(value, by=1):
    return value + by

... on the fly.

We will look at how the ast module helps parse Python code, and how it can be re-written.


A rock solid understanding of Python

Took me a while to get this together, but for future reference, here are the slides I used at PyConf Hyderabad on this topic:
