Domain Driven Design Patterns in Python

Domain-Driven Design (DDD) is an approach to software development that emphasises high-fidelity modelling of the problem domain, and which uses a software implementation of the domain model as a foundation for system design. This approach helps organize and minimize the essential complexity of your software. DDD has been used with success within the traditional enterprise programming ecosystems of Java and .NET, but has seen only limited adoption in the Python community.

In this talk we introduce Python programmers to the core tactical patterns of DDD and show how they can be realised in idiomatic Python, freeing the most valuable parts of your system – the domain model – from onerous dependencies on particular databases or application frameworks.

In this talk we share what we’ve learned from applying DDD in Python to large projects.

Reflection: Reflection can be caused to destroy singleton property of singleton class

After running this class, you will see that hashCodes are different that means, 2 objects of same class are created and singleton pattern has been destroyed.

Serialization:- Serialization can also cause breakage of singleton property of singleton classes. Serialization is used to convert an object of byte stream and save in a file or send over a network. Suppose you serialize an object of a singleton class. Then if you de-serialize that object it will create a new instance and hence break the singleton pattern.

As you can see, hashCode of both instances is different, hence there are 2 objects of a singleton class. Thus, the class is no more singleton.

Above both hashcodes are same hence no other instance is created.

Cloning: Cloning is a concept to create duplicate objects. Using clone we can create copy of object. Suppose, we create clone of a singleton object, then it wil create a copy that is there are two instances of a singleton class, hence the class is no more singleton.

Two different hashCode means there are 2 different objects of singleton class.

Top 5 Distributed System Design Patterns

Distributed applications are a staple of the modern software development industry. They’re pivotal to cloud storage services and allow web applications of massive scale to stay reactive. As programmers build these systems, they need fundamental building blocks they can use as a starting point and to communicate in a shared vocabulary.

This is where distributed system design patterns become invaluable. While sometimes overused, design patterns are a key skill recruiters are looking for and are essential to stand out in advanced system design interviews.

Today, we’ll explore 5 of the top distributed system design patterns to help you learn their advantages, disadvantages, and when to use them.

Here’s what we’ll cover today:

Template Method Design Pattern in Python

The software engineering process often reveals to us many redundant elements inside the structure and code of our software. Knowing this, some of the primary responsibilities of a developer are to write easily understandable and maintanable code - not just solutions.

However, projects often get more complex with time, making the initial software structure a critical element that must be well thought-out and implemented from the very beginning.

Design Patterns are intended to solve this issue.

Design patterns are a set of standards used to optimize specific tasks related to the Object Oriented Programming (OOP) paradigm. They aim to reduce overall count of code lines, optimize structures, and standardize the software architecture.

The Object-Oriented Programming paradigm delivers a structure based on classes, where each class represents a blueprint for an object (instance of that class) that has its own attributes and methods. These classes are related and have their own dependencies, compositions, inheritance, etc. Translating real-life problems and structures to software solutions is the primary motivation for implementing this structure.

In this guide, we’ll explore one of the Behavioral Design Patterns and its implementation in Python: the Template Method.

This design pattern will give us a general method composed of multiple steps. The classes related to our template method class can then call these steps individually or overwrite them.

In addition, we’ll learn how to use the ABC Library in Python, which defines an inheritance relationship for abstract base classes (ABCs). We’ll use this library to create a simple template method example.

Bootstrap 5 Design System

I started to play with this new utility API Bootstrap now has in its latest version. I’ve been using Bootstrap for the last few years, and I don’t want to drop it until I am sure there is a much better alternative.

I must say, I really enjoyed it, and I managed to create a pretty long list of utility classes that could help me write less CSS and make quick changes directly in the HTML. In my opinion, finding the balance between pre-defined components and utility classes is the way to go on long-term.

This is why I started this side-project called, Webpixels CSS. Initially, I built it to help me have a strong foundation for all my websites, but I realized this could help a lot more people who want to implement a nice adaptive design system into their projects.

It includes a comprehensive style guide, new components (besides the ones in Bootstrap), and an entire set of utility classes to extend the default look and feel.

In short, it behaves like a design system. Webpixels CSS is 100% compatible with the latest version of Bootstrap (currently v5), so if you are familiar with it, but you demand something more than it provides, then you should give this tool a try.

How to Use the BLoC Design Pattern for State Management in Flutter

In this tutorial, you can learn how to use the BLoC design pattern for state management in Flutter and how to implement any feature in BLoC.

Originally published by Pinkesh Darji at https://blog.logrocket.com/

When working on a Flutter app, you might encounter the need to split a large UI component into several smaller ones to improve the readability of the code. With multiple components, it’s crucial to implement effective communication between them. All UI components should be aware of the state of the app at all times. This is called state management.

In Flutter, you can manage the state of your app just by using setState. But while setState can be your best friend, it’s not a good idea to depend on it solely. There are many other factors you should also consider while developing a Flutter app, such as architecture, scalability, readability, complexity, etc. Staying on top of everything requires an effective state management technique.

There are myriad state management solutions available for Flutter, including Provider, InheritedWidget and InheritedModel, Redux, BLoC, GetIt, MobX, Riverpod, etc. In this tutorial, we’ll focus on using the BLoC design pattern for state management in Flutter. We’ll explain what BLoC means and demonstrate how to implement any feature in BLoC.

What is BLoC?

Business logic components (BLoC) allow you to separate the business logic from the UI. Writing code in BLoC makes it easier to write and reuse tests.

In simple terms, BLoC accepts a stream of events, processes the data based on events, and produces the output as states. Take the simple example below:

Process Events and Produces States

As soon as the Rotate 90° button is clicked, the RotateEvent is dispatched to BLoC and the state representing the rotation, i.e. RotatedState, is emitted. The triangle widget rotates itself upon receiving the RotatedState from the BLoC. Similarly, the circle widget changes its color when the Change color to Red button is clicked.

Since the BLoC handles the rotation and changing color operation, both operations can be performed on any widget. This facilitates the reusability of the code.

Important BLoC concepts

Before we dive in, let’s review some basic BLoC concepts and terms so we’re all on the same page.

Events

Events tell BLoC to do something. An event can be fired from anywhere, such as from a UI widget. External events, such as changes in network connectivity, changes in sensor readings, etc., look like this:

class RotateEvent {
  final double angle;

  const RotateEvent(this.angle);

  @override
  List<Object> get props => [angle];
}

BLoC

BLoC is a man in the middle. All the business logic sits inside the BLoC file. It simply accepts events, performs the logic, and outputs the states. Here’s how it looks:

class TransformationBloc
    extends Bloc<TransformationEvent, TransformationState> {
  TransformationBloc() : super(RotatedState(angle: 0);

  @override
  Stream<TransformationState> mapEventToState(
      TransformationEvent event) async* {
    if (event is RotateEvent) {
      yield RotatedState(angle: event.angle);
    }
  }
}

States

States represent the information to be processed by any widget. A widget changes itself based on the state.

class RotatedState {
  final double angle;

  const RotatedState({@required this.angle});

  @override
  List<Object> get props => [angle];
}

Cubit

Cubit is a simpler version of the BLoC pattern. It eliminates the need to write events.

Cubit exposes direct functions, which can result in appropriate states. Writing a Cubit instead of BLoC also reduces boilerplate code, making the code easier to read.

Here’s a simple example:

class TransformCubit extends Cubit<TransformState> {
  TransformCubit() : super(RotatedState(angle: 0));

  void rotate(double angle) {
    emit(RotatedState(angle: angle));
  }

}

Managing state in Flutter with setState (no BLoC)

Before we highlight the benefits of managing state in Flutter with BLoC, let’s walk through the process of using setState for state management instead.

Our example Flutter app will show a list of available products. A product can be added or removed from the cart by clicking the icon beside the product name. The number of items in the cart is updated accordingly:

Cart Updating

With setState, the entire UI is broken down into three classes:

  1. home.dart is the main file holding the scaffold and AppBar. AppBar contains the cart icon widget
  2. product_list.dart shows the list of products
  3. product_tile.dart shows the individual product item.

Here’s how it looks:

UI Broken Into Three Classes

The list of items in the cart is passed all the way from the Home (top) to the ProductTile (bottom) widget to check whether a given item exits in the cart or not. If it does, the cart icon will be highlighted.

Cart Icon Highlighted

Clicking on the cart icon beside the product name adds the item to the cart. The callback to refresh the cart icon on the AppBar is made from ProductTile (bottom) to Home (top).

Callback to Refresh Cart

**The problem with **setState

The setState approach to state management in Flutter works well for simple apps with just a few components. But for more complex, real-world Flutter apps with deep widget trees, using setState can lead to the following issues:

  • Code duplication — data has to be passed from all widgets to the bottom widget, which makes the code difficult to read
  • Performance degradation due to unnecessary redraws that result from lifting a setState to a parent widget with a deep hierarchy

How to manage state in Flutter with BLoC

Now let’s implement the same feature with BLoC.

First, add the BLoC library:

dependencies:
  flutter:
    sdk: flutter
  cupertino_icons: ^1.0.2
  flutter_bloc: ^7.0.0

Next, create and add a BLoC observer. This helps you determine the sequence of events and states that have occurred, which is great for debugging the app.

void main() {
  Bloc.observer = SimpleBlocObserver();
  runApp(MyApp());
}
import 'package:flutter_bloc/flutter_bloc.dart';

/// Custom [BlocObserver] which observes all bloc and cubit instances.
class SimpleBlocObserver extends BlocObserver {
  @override
  void onEvent(Bloc bloc, Object event) {
    super.onEvent(bloc, event);
    print(event);
  }

  @override
  void onTransition(Bloc bloc, Transition transition) {
    super.onTransition(bloc, transition);
    print(transition);
  }

  @override
  void onError(BlocBase bloc, Object error, StackTrace stackTrace) {
    print(error);
    super.onError(bloc, error, stackTrace);
  }
}

Create events to add and remove products from the list of cart items:

import 'package:equatable/equatable.dart';

abstract class CartEvent extends Equatable {
  const CartEvent();

  @override
  List<Object> get props => [];
}

class AddProduct extends CartEvent {
  final int productIndex;
  const AddProduct(this.productIndex);
  @override
  List<Object> get props => [productIndex];
  @override
  String toString() => 'AddProduct { index: $productIndex }';
}

Now, create states to represent a product being added and removed:

import 'package:flutter/material.dart';

abstract class CartState {
  final List<int> cartItem;
  const CartState({@required this.cartItem});

  @override
  List<Object> get props => [];
}

class ProductAdded extends CartState {
  final List<int> cartItem;
  const ProductAdded({@required this.cartItem}) : super(cartItem: cartItem);

  @override
  List<Object> get props => [cartItem];
  @override
  String toString() => 'ProductAdded { todos: $cartItem }';
}

Write business logic to add and remove products into the cartItems and emit the respective state. The actual list of items in the cart is maintained at the BLoC level.

class CartBloc extends Bloc<CartEvent, CartState> {
  CartBloc() : super(ProductAdded(cartItem: []));

  final List<int> _cartItems = [];
  List<int> get items => _cartItems;

  @override
  Stream<CartState> mapEventToState(CartEvent event) async* {
    if (event is AddProduct) {
      _cartItems.add(event.productIndex);
      yield ProductAdded(cartItem: _cartItems);
    } else if (event is RemoveProduct) {
      _cartItems.remove(event.productIndex);
      yield ProductRemoved(cartItem: _cartItems);
    }
  }
}

Next, wrap the scaffold widget inside BlocProvider.

BlocProvider is a Flutter widget that makes any BLoC available to the entire widget tree below it. In our case, any widget in between Home (top) and ProductTile (bottom) can have access to the cart, so no need to pass the cart data from the top of the widget tree to the bottom.

BlocProvider(
    create: (_) => CartBloc(),
    child: Scaffold(
      appBar: CartCounter(),
      body: ProductList(),
    ));

Wrap the cart icon and product list inside the BlocBuilderBlocBuilder simply rebuilds the widget inside it upon receiving the new states from the BLoC.

// Cart icon
BlocBuilder<CartBloc, CartState>(builder: (_, cartState) {
  List<int> cartItem = cartState.cartItem;
  return Positioned(
    left: 30,
    child: Container(
      padding: EdgeInsets.all(5),
      decoration: BoxDecoration(
          borderRadius: BorderRadius.circular(10),
          color: Colors.red),
      child: Text(
        '${cartItem.length}',
        style: TextStyle(fontWeight: FontWeight.bold),
      ),
    ),
  );
}),
//Product list
 BlocBuilder<CartBloc, CartState>(builder: (_, cartState) {
  List<int> cart = cartState.cartItem;
  return LayoutBuilder(builder: (context, constraints) {
    return GridView.builder(
      itemCount: 100,
      itemBuilder: (context, index) => ProductTile(
        itemNo: index,
        cart: cart,
      ),
      gridDelegate: SliverGridDelegateWithFixedCrossAxisCount(
        crossAxisCount: constraints.maxWidth > 700 ? 4 : 1,
        childAspectRatio: 5,
      ),
    );
  });
});

Note: The BlocBuilder for CartBloc is added only in two places because we only want these two widgets to rebuild when something happen at CartBloc. This approach of only refreshing widgets that are required significantly reduces the number of unnecessary redraws.

The next step is to shoot events to CartBloc for adding and removing items in the cart. BlocProvider.of<CartBloc>(context) finds the nearest instance of CartBloc in the widget tree and adds the events to it:

IconButton(
  key: Key('icon_$itemNo'),
  icon: cart.contains(itemNo)
      ? Icon(Icons.shopping_cart)
      : Icon(Icons.shopping_cart_outlined),
  onPressed: () {
    !cart.contains(itemNo)
        ? BlocProvider.of<CartBloc>(context).add(AddProduct(itemNo))
        : BlocProvider.of<CartBloc>(context).add(RemoveProduct(itemNo));
  },
)

Now replace BlocBuilder with BlocConsumerBlocConsumer allows us to rebuild the widget and react to the states. It should be only used when you want to rebuild the widget and also perform some action.

For our example, we want to refresh the list and show a snackbar whenever a product is added or removed from the cart:

BlocConsumer<CartBloc, CartState>(
listener: (context, state) { 
  Scaffold.of(context).showSnackBar(
    SnackBar(
      content: Text(
          state is ProductAdded ? 'Added to cart.' : 'Removed from cart.'),
      duration: Duration(seconds: 1),
    ),
  );
}, 
builder: (_, cartState) {
  List<int> cart = cartState.cartItem;
  return LayoutBuilder(builder: (context, constraints) {
    return GridView.builder();
  });
});

Optionally, if you want to reduce some boilerplate code and the sequence of the states doesn’t matter to you, try Cubit. Here is what CartCubit would look like:

class CartCubit extends Cubit<CartState> {
  CartCubit() : super(ProductAdded(cartItem: []));

  final List<int> _cartItems = [];
  List<int> get items => _cartItems;

  void add(int productIndex) {
    _cartItems.add(productIndex);
    emit (ProductAdded(cartItem: _cartItems));
  }

  void remove(int productIndex) {
    _cartItems.remove(productIndex);
    emit (ProductRemoved(cartItem: _cartItems));
  }
}

Note: Replace CartBloc with CartCubit throughout the code and fire the events as shown below:

onPressed: () {
  !cart.contains(itemNo)
      ? BlocProvider.of<CartCubit>(context).add(itemNo)
      : BlocProvider.of<CartCubit>(context).remove(itemNo);
},

The output is the same but with improved state management:

Cart Updating

Conclusion

Having a solid BLoC architecture in place leads to a good separation of concerns. Although using the BLoC pattern requires more code than using setState, it makes the code more readable, scalable, and testable.

In this tutorial, we covered the basics of using the BLoC pattern in Flutter and walked through a practical example to highlight the benefits of using BLoC for state management in Flutter over the setState approach.
