[Tut] Python callable() Function

#1
Python callable() Function



Python’s built-in callable(object) returns True if you could call the object argument like a function with the trailing parentheses in object(). You can make any object callable by implementing the instance’s __call__() method. For example, callable(callable) returns True because callable is a function object. But callable(3) returns False because an integer is not a function you can call.

Here’s a minimal example:

>>> callable(callable)
True
>>> callable(3)
False

Note: The function callable() was first removed in Python 3.0 but then reintroduced in version 3.2 and above.

Syntax: callable(object)

Argument object Any Python object such as a custom object, a list, a function, a class, or any other object.
Return Value Boolean: True/False Returns True if the object can be called with object()
Returns False otherwise.

Here are some basic usages of the function:

Input : callable(42)
Output : False Input : callable(int)
Output : True Input : callable(callable)
Output : True

But before we move on, I’m excited to present you my brand-new Python book Python One-Liners (Amazon Link).

If you like one-liners, you’ll LOVE the book. It’ll teach you everything there is to know about a single line of Python code. But it’s also an introduction to computer science, data science, machine learning, and algorithms. The universe in a single line of Python!

The book is released in 2020 with the world-class programming book publisher NoStarch Press (San Francisco).

How to Check Whether a Function Object is Callable


The following code shows you how to use the callable() method to check whether an arbitrary object is a function, method, or another callable object:

def finxter(): return 'Python' print(callable(finxter))
# True f = finxter print(callable(f))
# True print(callable(finxter()))
# False

How to Create Your Own Callable Object


The following code shows you how to create your own callable object.

class Car: def __call__(self): print('brumm') porsche = Car() # Is it callable?
print(callable(porsche))
# True # Call it!
porsche()
# brumm

This is an interesting way to make any instance instantly callable so that it can be used as a function.

Summary


Python’s built-in callable(object) returns True if you can call the object argument like a function with the trailing parentheses in object().

Otherwise, it returns False.

For example, callable(callable) returns True because callable is a function object. But callable(3) returns False because an integer is not a function you can call.

You can make any object callable by implementing the instance’s __call__() method.
