Create an instance outside app.callback and call it inside it using getattr(self,'str')

Is it possible to create an instance in a dash application code and call it inside the @app.callback?

I could call it inside, of course, but the way my class is made makes me need this specific feature.

To be more specific:

Assuming a class called Foo.

it would look like:

import dash
import dash_core_components as dcc
import dash_html_components as html
import Foo

f = Foo()

x = f.something()

app = dash.Dash()

app.layout = html.Div([…])

@app.callback( dash.dependencies.Output(id,property),
def callback(value):

data =getattr(f,‘specific_data’)

…any other lines of code…

if name == ‘main’:

This makes complete sense, and is a sensible way to share read-only data between callbacks. You just have to be careful not to mutate the value of this object, otherwise users will have inconsistent states.

Hadn’t tested the way I wrote it, but it is actually working this way. Sorry for the request.
