(TIL) Python: Class inheritance

less than 1 minute read

You can check for class inheritance relationships with the issubclass() built-in:

>>> class BaseClass: pass
>>> class SubClass(BaseClass): pass

>>> issubclass(SubClass, BaseClass)
True
>>> issubclass(SubClass, object)
True
>>> issubclass(BaseClass, SubClass)
False
