An ext-tensible loader to import anything like it is a python module.

Supports Python 3.6+.


pip install import-x


Example json file in your path foo.json:

        "why": "not",
   # Extend the ExtensionLoader and implement 'handle_module' method
   # where you will get a module object and the path to that module.

   >>> from import_x import ExtensionLoader

   >>> class JsonLoader(ExtensionLoader):
        extension = '.json'

        auto_enable = False

        def handle_module(module, path):
            Load the json file and set as `data` attribute of the module.
            json_file = Path(path)
            content = json_file.read_text()
                data = json.loads(content)
            except (json.JSONDecodeError, ValueError):
                data = {}
   = data

    >>> json_imports = JsonLoader()
    >>> with json_imports:
            import foo
    >>> {"why": "not"}

If you want to enable imports automatically without the context_manager then just do auto_enable = True in your loader.

This Example JsonLoader can be used directly by importing

    from import_x.loaders.json_loader import JsonLoader

and you are ready to import all the json files.
