  1. decorator

    A decorator is a design pattern in programming that allows behavior or functionality to be added to an object, without actually altering the object's structure or code. This is typically accomplished by placing the object within a special wrapper object that contains the new behavior or functionality. In Python, they are more specifically a callable that takes a function as an input and extends its behavior without explicitly modifying it. Decorators are also forms of furnishings used to beautify or adorn in interior designing context.
