A modern component / dependency injector for python 3.6+.

pip install component-injector==1.1.1



A modern component / dependency injector for python 3.6+.

This library provides a framework-agnostic component (or dependency) injector that injects registered components into your function calls. The components to insert are identified by looking at the called function argument annotations.

When registering a component, all its base classes are registered as well unless you explicitly disable that. You can also choose to only register base classes that are not already registered with the injector.

It provides local scopes where you can register additional components or override existing components. After exiting the scope, the registry will return to the state it was in before entering the scope.


component-injector is compatible with python 3.6+ using the backported contextvars and dataclasses packages.

The scopes are thread-safe and when using python 3.7 also safe for for use with asyncio tasks.


component-injector is available from pypi:

pip install component-injector

Usage example

Here's a small demo on how to use the injector:

from component_injector import Injector

injector = Injector()

class O:

def consumer_of_o(o: O) -> None:

consumer_of_o()  # 'o' wil be the registered instance.

consumer_of_o(O())  # 'o' will be this new instance.

Development setup

For development purposes, you can clone the repository and use poetry to install and maintain the dependencies. There is no test suite. The project comes with a set of pre-commit hooks that can format (isort, black) and check your code (mypy, flake8) automatically.

git clone
cd component-injector
poetry run pre-commit install
