Quick start

On your mark, get set, GO!


An example web application to greet people.

Custom types

When dependencies are common types like strings, creating more specific types is helpful. The typing.NewType method is useful here. We define a Greeting type but it could have been something like DatabaseURL.

import typing

Greeting = typing.NewType("Greeting", str)

Defining dependencies

You define dependencies using an injector.Module. Or a simple function with an injector.Binder instance as a parameter.

import injector

def configure(binder: injector.Binder) -> None:
    binder.bind(Greeting, to="Hello")

The web bits

Create a quart web application as usual. Adding the injector.Inject annotations to mark external dependencies in views. The framework will handle passing these values.

import injector
import quart

app = quart.Quart(__name__)

@app.route("/", defaults={"name": "World"})
async def greeting_view(greeting: injector.Inject[Greeting], name: str) -> str:
    return f"{greeting} {name}!"

Wireing it up

Finally we wire everything together with the wire() method.

import quart_injector

quart_injector.wire(app, modules=[configure])
