Type hints when unpacking a tuple?

Is it possible to use type hinting when unpacking a tuple? I want to do this, but it results in a SyntaxError:

from typing import Tuple

t: Tuple[int, int] = (1, 2)
a: int, b: int = t
#     ^ SyntaxError: invalid syntax


  • According to PEP-0526, you should annotate the types first, then do the unpacking

    a: int
    b: int
    a, b = t
