Discover and load entry points from installed packages.

Project description

Entry points are a way for Python packages to advertise objects with some common interface. The most common examples are console_scripts entry points, which define shell commands by identifying a Python function to run.

Groups of entry points, such as console_scripts, point to objects with similar interfaces. An application might use a group to find its plugins, or multiple groups if it has different kinds of plugins.

The entrypoints module contains functions to find and load entry points. You can install it from PyPI with pip install entrypoints.

To advertise entry points when distributing a package, see entry_points in the Python Packaging User Guide.
