Private Variables in Python!
#Private Variables in Python...
Disclaimer - This is a "bug" and might be removed at anytime
First of all, you might ask, "What is a private variable"? Well... A private variable is a variable that cannot be accessed by any import statement etc.
How it works
This "bug" works on the fact that in python, there are a few attrs that are in each module they are: '__annotations', '__builtins', '__doc', '__loader', '__name', '__package', '__spec'. If you notice them, they all start with a
\__. Next in python, there are 2 types of import statements, the
import module or
from module import attr (this "bug" only works with the second). In
from module import * it import everything right? Wrong (kind of) it imports everything except variable that start with
\__ because otherwise, it would override the __name attr in the current file (I think you can see where I am going with this)... So to create private variable, we just need to make the variable start with a
\__ and HOORAY! We have private variables!
