Events 0.5 released

Today I released Events 0.5. Thanks to Cailean Parker’s contribution, we added support for the __getitem__ dunder (aka Python magic method.) This allows the calling of events from strings, thus enabling dynamic events. For instance:

events = Events(tuple(f"on_{i}" for i in range(5)))

for i in range(5):

The C# language provides a handy way to declare, subscribe to and fire events. In C#, an event is a “slot” to which callback functions (event handlers) can be attached - a process referred to as subscribing to an event. Events adds this mechanism to Python. It originated as a side experiment (I was a C# transfugee then) that I later adopted as an Eve dependency. It slowly got some traction besides my projects. Read more on the project’s GitHub page.
