Gin is a system for configuring python code that is still very much in early phases, but very powerful.
It does not make sense to create a function in order to configure something. You may need to make a reference first though. The files below reflect how you might be able to do that.
simulate.random_func = @random.uniform random.uniform.a = 0 random.uniform.b = 2
import gin import random gin.external_configurable(random.uniform) gin.external_configurable(random.triangular) @gin.configurable(blacklist=["n_samples"]) def simulate(random_func, n_samples): return sum(random_func() for i in range(n_samples)) if __name__ == "__main__": gin.parse_config_file('config.gin') print(simulate())
