The class keyword is used for defining classes in Python.

Syntax

class ClassName:
  # Class body

The name of the class should be in CamelCase. The indented class body contains definitions for any attributes or methods. Class definitions cannot be empty, so the pass statement can be used as a placeholder to avoid errors.

class ClassName:
  pass
