WHY MYPY? #1

Less cognitive load needed to work with our code. The types of parameters and return values are clearly stated and verified. No guessing, and no surprises.

WHY MYPY? #2

Realize mistakes early. If we return the wrong type, forget that a variable may be None, or accidentally redeclare a variable, the type checker will tell us.

WHY MYPY? #3

Data validation. We declare our data classes using attrs, which allows us to state the types of our attributes, as well as checking them at runtime. We may switch to Pydantic, which has better syntax.

WHY MYPY? #4

Avoid trivial unit tests. Type checking avoids the need to write and maintain trivial unit tests.

What Types we can use?

Basic Types:

int, str, dict, list, set, float etc.
 

Advanced typing introduced in python 3.5

  • Collections: Tuple, Dict, MutableMapping, List, NamedTuple, etc.
  • Composers: Union, Optional
  • Callable
  • Generics: TypeVar, Generic.

INTEGRATING MYPY TO DEVELOPMENT FLOW

DEMO TIME!
