Project description

flake8 plugin to require absolute imports

Current Development Version:

GitHub Workflow Status

Most Recent Stable Release:


Don’t like relative imports?

Lint ‘em out!

flake8-absolute-import uses a direct check of the AST for each from x import y statement to flag relative imports. Specifically, it checks for a nonzero level attribute on each ImportFrom node.

Relative imports raise the ABS101 error code:

from foo import bar   # OK
from .foo import bar  # ABS101

Available on PyPI (pip install flake8-absolute-import). flake8 should automatically detect and load the plugin. flake8>=5.0 is required.
