Awesome Python Typing Awesome Gitter

Collection of awesome Python types, stubs, plugins, and tools to work with them.

Static type checkers

  • mypy - Optional static typing for Python 3 and 2 (PEP 484).
  • pyre - Performant type-checker for Python 3.
  • pytype - Tool to check and infer types for Python code - without requiring type annotations.
  • PyCharm - IDE for Professional Developers.
  • pyright - Fast type checker meant for large Python source bases. It can run in a “watch” mode and performs fast incremental updates when files are modified.

Dynamic type checkers

  • pytypes - Provides a rich set of utilities for runtime typechecking.
  • pydantic - Data parsing using Python type hinting. Supports dataclasses.
  • typeguard - Another one runtime type checker.
  • typical - Data parsing and automatic type-coercion using type hinting. Supports dataclasses, standard classes, function signatures, and more.

Stub packages

Backports and improvements

  • typed-ast - Modified fork of CPython's ast module that parses # type: comments.
  • typing-extensions - Backported and experimental type hints.
  • typingplus - Backport support, dynamic is_instance and cast for abstract types.
  • typet - Length-bounded types, dynamic object validation.




Working with types

  • MonkeyType - Collects runtime types of function arguments and return values, and can automatically generate stub files or even add draft type annotations directly to your Python code based on the types collected at runtime.
  • merge_pyi - Part of pytype toolchain, applies stub files onto source code.
  • retype - Another tool to apply stubs to code.
  • mypy-protobuf - Tool to generate mypy stubs from protobufs.
  • mypyc - Compiles mypy-annotated, statically typed Python modules into CPython C extensions.
  • typing_inspect - The typing_inspect module defines experimental API for runtime inspection of types defined in the Python standard typing module.
  • typing-json - Lib for working with typed objects and JSON.
