Wrap a class to add a
transformmethod as an alias to an existing method.
An example of use is for classes possessing a
scoremethod such as kernel density estimators and anomaly/novelty detection estimators, to allow for these estimators are to be used as steps in a pipeline.
Note that 1D array outputs are reshaped into 2D column vectors before being returned by the new
cls (object) – Class to be wrapped. If method_name is not one of its methods,
method_name (str) – Name of the method in cls to which
transformwill be an alias. The fist argument of this method (after
self) becomes the
wrapped_cls – New class inheriting from
sklearn.base.TransformerMixin, so that both
fit_transformare available. Its name is the name of cls prepended with
- Return type
