I'm trying out a bunch of different fits for distributions.
Is there any way to get the name of the distribution back from the distribution object?
I found a way but it doesn't seem very efficient.
distribution = "gamma"
distr = getattr(stats, distribution)
# <scipy.stats._continuous_distns.gamma_gen object at 0x11688f518>
>>> from scipy import stats >>> distribution = "gamma" >>> distr = getattr(stats, distribution) >>> distr.name 'gamma'
