What is Whistle?

Whistle is an Event Dispatcher library for the Python 3.5+ language.

It's largely inspired from Symfony's EventDispatcher component.

Using an event dispatcher is a great way to write loosely coupled extensible code, having each part only communicate using light events.

Quick start

Install the whistle package:

 $ pip install whistle

Create an event dispatcher

from whistle import EventDispatcher

dispatcher = EventDispatcher()

Add a listener to react to events

def on_spectacle_starts(event):
    print('Please turn down your phones!')

dispatcher.add_listener('spectacle.starts', on_spectacle_starts)

Dispatch it!
