Import for Humans 💅🏻
This is to be a project on modifying sys.metapath and making Python import statement as smooth as possible.
This idea was originally inspired from the Bro/Zeek language, where it uses @load statement what import doses in Python, except that the @load statement takes a relative path as its specifier. For example:
@load ./sample_local.bro @load ../sample_parent.bro @load ../sample/child.bro
with the project structure as following:
root |-- foo | |-- this_script.bro | |-- sample_local.bro | |-- sample | |-- child.bro |-- sample_parent.bro
which means, the @load statement is always relative to where it comes from, rather than a working directory or package root as in Python.
Thus, we intend to make the Python import statement works just like @load. This is the back story of the impfxxk project.
When your project is as such:
root |-- foo | |-- this_script.py | |-- sample_local.py | |-- sample | |-- child.py |-- sample_parent.py
Normally, you will want to do:
import .sample_local import .sample.child import ..sample_parent
there can be some issues when the Python interpreter tries to figure out what is what when you are not running it at /root/foo/, where the relative paths are ought to be.
However, with impfxxk, you can simply add a statement (it’s not decided yet) before your original import statements, just like __future__ does; and your code will work just as you wish.
