Key featuresΒΆ

Key features of the Dependency Injector:

  • Providers. Provides Factory, Singleton, Callable, Coroutine, Object, List, Dict, Configuration, Resource, Dependency and Selector providers that help assembling your objects. See Providers.
  • Overriding. Can override any provider by another provider on the fly. This helps in testing and configuring dev / stage environment to replace API clients with stubs etc. See Provider overriding.
  • Configuration. Reads configuration from yaml & ini files, environment variables and dictionaries. See Configuration provider.
  • Resources. Helps with initialization and configuring of logging, event loop, thread or process pool, etc. See Resource provider.
  • Containers. Provides declarative and dynamic containers. See Containers.
  • Wiring. Injects dependencies into functions and methods. Helps integrating with other frameworks: Django, Flask, Aiohttp, etc. See Wiring.
  • Typing. Provides typing stubs, mypy-friendly. See Typing and mypy.
  • Performance. Fast. Written in Cython.
  • Maturity. Mature and production-ready. Well-tested, documented and supported.

The framework stands on the PEP20 (The Zen of Python) principle:

Explicit is better than implicit

You need to specify how to assemble and where to inject the dependencies explicitly.

The power of the framework is in a simplicity. Dependency Injector is a simple tool for the powerful concept.
