Conditionally enter a context manager

Project Description

Package Contents

conditional(condition, contextmanager)
Enter contextmanager only if condition is true.

Overview

The conditional context manager comes handy when you always want to execute a with-block but only conditionally want to apply its context manager.

If you find yourself writing code like this:

if CONDITION:
    with CONTEXTMANAGER():
        BODY()
else:
    BODY()

Consider replacing it with:

with conditional(CONDITION, CONTEXTMANAGER()):
    BODY()

Examples

Say we want to ignore signals when a pager application is in the foreground, but not otherwise:

from conditional import conditional

with conditional(has_pager(cmd), ignoresignals()):
    os.system(cmd)
