2.1.0 is released!

  • Python 2.6 is no longer supported (and Aglyph 2.1.0 will not run on Python 2.6 without patching).

  • The Aglyph context DTD has been updated to support both lifecycle methods and templates.
  • The aglpyh.integration package has been added to support integrating Aglyph with other projects.
  • Aglyph 2.1.0 introduces CherryPy integration using the classes defined in aglyph.integration.cherrypy. Refer to Integrating Aglyph for examples.
  • The caches defined in aglyph.cache are now implemented as context managers, and the public lock members have been deprecated.
  • A “safe” representation is now used to log assembled objects, ensuring that possibly sensitive data is not logged.
  • Deprecated classes and functions now issue aglyph.AglyphDeprecationWarning.

1.0.0 is released!

After a long hiatus and several rewrites, Aglyph 1.0.0 is now fully tested and ready to go. The new home page is

(Note: version 0.9 was never released because it fell in-between Python 2.7 and 3.x releases, prompting a rewrite once the dust settled on 3.1.)

* runs on Python 2 and Python 3
* runs on CPython, Jython, IronPython, PyPy, and Stackless
* a smaller codebase and simplifed XML context DTD
* support for the "borg" pattern in addition to "prototype" and "singleton"

0.8-beta is released!

Aglyph-0.8-beta has been released. Four milestones were achieved in this release:
1. Added support for lazy/eager evaluation of arguments and setters
2. Expanded DTD to include support for almost all standard Python types
3. Removed INI-style configuration support
4. Created full test suite (unittest)

For now, the XML context file in the test suite is the best place to look for examples of how to set up your own context. I plan to include full documentation and samples in the 0.9 release later this summer.

Development for 0.8-beta is underway

Work has begun on 0.8-beta. The two biggest changes in this version (ETA mid-May) will be (a) removing support for the Ini-style configuration file syntax and (b) adding support for eager/lazy evaluation of constructor and setter arguments.
Once eager/lazy evaluation is implemented, Aglyph will be able to handle all Python builtin types as argument values.
