Python classes are simply a bag of named attributes. An attribute being anything
that follows a "." using the Python syntax. eg.
We classify attributes according to their function. For example:
- An attribute that holds a value is a variable. See instence variables and class variables.
- An attribute that is a function is called a method. See class methods and instance methods.
- An attribute that represents a value accessed by getters/setters is call a property
class MyClass: value = 42 # Class Variable Attribute def __init__(self, x): self._x = x # Instance variable Attribute def myMethod(self): # Method Attribute return x @property # Property Attribute def x(self): return self._x; @grams.setter def x(self, value): self._x = value
