Current module relative paths and imports

Project description

Latest PyPI Version License Supported Python Versions Format

Get the path of a file relative to the current module. Import a Python module relative to the current module. Temporarily change sys.path for imports. Get the path of a file relative to the module of the current caller.

Installation

This package runs under Python 2.7 and 3.5+, use pip to install:

$ pip install current

Usage

Get paths relative to the current module:

>>> import current

>>> here = current.current_path()
>>> parent = current.current_path('..')
>>> bruces = current.current_path('..', 'australia', 'bruces', 'bruces.ini')

Temporarily add the parent directory to sys.path:

>>> with current.inserted_path()
...     import australia

Get paths relative to the module of the callers of the current code:

>>> caller = current.caller_path()
>>> callercaller = current.caller_path(steps=2)

Potential issues

This package uses sys._getframe (which is almost the same as inspect.currentframe, see docs). Under IronPython this might require enabling the FullFrames option of the interpreter.
