Frame Hack Recipe: Generating properties on a wrapper class

Step 2

Implement the properties function, using a frame hack. This time, you are not allowed to use the eval function.s

import sys
from employee import Employee

def properties(**kwargs):
    """Implement this function"""

class PyEmployee(object):
    def __init__(self, **kwargs):
        self.e = Employee()
        for k, v in kwargs.items():
            setattr(self, k, v)

        given  = 'GivenName',
        family = 'FamilyName',
        birth =  'DateOfBirth',

e = PyEmployee(given='Feihong', family='Hsu', birth='2007-11-15')
print e.given, e.e.GetGivenName()

e.given = 'Horatio'     # change given name through the property
print e.given, e.e.GetGivenName() = 'Kodiak'
print, e.e.GetFamilyName()

e.birth = '2009-12-23'
print e.birth, e.e.GetDateOfBirth()

Expected output:

Feihong Feihong
Horatio Horatio
Kodiak Kodiak
2009-12-23 2009-12-23
