Tutorial by Topics: classes



Objects have states and behaviors. Example: A dog has states - color, name, breed as well as behaviors – wagging the tail, barking, eating. An object is an instance of a class.

Class − A class can be defined as a template/blueprint that describes the behavior/state that the object of its type support.

Metaclasses allow you to deeply modify the behaviour of Python classes (in terms of how they're defined, instantiated, accessed, and more) by replacing the type metaclass that new classes use by default.

Python offers itself not only as a popular scripting language, but also supports the object-oriented programming paradigm. Classes describe data and provide methods to manipulate that data, all encompassed under a single object. Furthermore, classes allow for abstraction by separating concrete implementation details from abstract representations of data.

Code utilizing classes is generally easier to read, understand, and maintain.

Classes and Objects are used to to make your code more efficient and less repetitive by grouping similar tasks.

A class is used to define the actions and data structure used to build objects. The objects are then built using this predefined structure.

Classes and IDs make referencing HTML elements from scripts and stylesheets easier. The class attribute can be used on one or more tags and is used by CSS for styling. IDs however are intended to refer to a single element, meaning the same ID should never be used twice. IDs are generally used with JavaScript and internal document links, and are discouraged in CSS. This topic contains helpful explanations and examples regarding proper usage of class and ID attributes in HTML.

A class is an extensible program-code-template for creating objects, providing initial values for state (member variables) and implementations of behavior (member functions or methods).A class is a blueprint for an object. It is used as a model to define the structure of objects. An object contains data that we access through properties and that we can work on using methods. PowerShell 5.0 added the ability to create your own classes.

These classes are reference libraries of methods and properties that do not change state, in one word, immutable. You don't need to create them, you simply use them. Classes and methods such as these are called static classes because they are not created, destroyed, or changed.You can refer to a static class by surrounding the class name with square brackets.

TypeScript, like ECMA Script 6, support object-oriented programming using classes. This contrasts with older JavaScript versions, which only supported prototype-based inheritance chain.

The class support in TypeScript is similar to that of languages like Java and C#, in that classes may inherit from other classes, while objects are instantiated as class instances.

Also similar to those languages, TypeScript classes may implement interfaces or make use of generics.

Typeclasses in Haskell are a means of defining the behaviour associated with a type separately from that type's definition. Whereas, say, in Java, you'd define the behaviour as part of the type's definition -- i.e. in an interface, abstract class or concrete class -- Haskell keeps these two things separate.

There are a number of typeclasses already defined in Haskell's base package. The relationship between these is illustrated in the Remarks section below.
