Remove Annotations

This transform removes function annotations and variable annotations.

This transform is generally safe to use. Although the annotations have no meaning to python, they are made available at runtime. If you know the module requires the annotations to be kept, disable this transform.

If a variable annotation without assignment is used the annotation is changed to a literal zero instead of being removed.

The transform is enabled by default. Disable this source transformation by passing the remove_annotations=False argument to the python_minifier.minify() function, or passing --no-remove-annotations to the pyminify command.

Example

Input

def compile(source: "something compilable",
            filename: "where the compilable thing comes from",
            mode: "A string annotation"):
    a: int = 1
    b: str

    def inner():
        nonlocal b
        b = 'hello'

    inner()
    print(b)

compile(None, None, None)

Output

def compile(source,filename,mode):
	a=1;b:0
	def inner():nonlocal b;b='hello'
	inner();print(b)
compile(None,None,None)
