Example text

Dppl6++lnk`f]jck*_ki+beha)iapdk`o+ CHAPTER 2 ฀ D JA N G O I S P Y T H O N Iterables An object is considered iterable if passing it to the built-in epan$% returns an iterator. epan$% is often called implicitly, as in a bkn loop. All lists, tuples and dictionaries are iterable, and any new-style class can be made iterable by defining the following method. __iter__(self) This method is called implicitly by epan$% and is responsible for returning an iterator that Python can use to retrieve items from the object.

The possibilities aren’t limited to the options outlined in this book, so feel free to look around for Python utilities that will help support your business plan, and use the techniques listed in this book to integrate them into your application. Though learning Python is beyond the scope of this book, Django uses some of its advanced features. In this chapter, I’ll discuss many of those features to help you understand how Python can contribute to the goal of making things easier for everyone. How Python Builds Classes Some of the most advanced Python techniques that Django relies on are related to how Python constructs its classes.

__len__(self) With all the values available, sequences have a specific length, which can be determined using the built-in haj$% function. Behind the scenes, haj$% checks to see if the object it’s given has a [[haj[[$% method and uses that to get the length of the sequence. To accomplish this, [[haj[[$% should return an integer containing the number of items in the sequence. Technically, [[haj[[$% doesn’t require that all the values be known in advance, as long as it’s at least known how many values there will be.
