flufl.enum - A Python enumeration package

This package is called flufl.enum, a Python enumeration package.

The goals of flufl.enum are to produce simple, specific, concise semantics in an easy to read and write syntax. flufl.enum has just enough of the features needed to make enumerations useful, but without a lot of extra baggage to weigh them down. This work grew out of the Mailman 3.0 project and it is the enum package used there. This package was previously called munepy.

flufl.enum is an implementation of the standard library enumeration package described in PEP 435 for Python 3.4. It is available as a separate package for use in older Python versions.


flufl.enum requires Python 2.7 or newer, and is compatible with Python 3.2 and later.


A simple guide to using the library is available within this package. The manual is also available online at:
