Import non-python files

Project description

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

Supports Python 3.6+.

Usage

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

     @staticmethod
     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()
         try:
             data = json.loads(content)
         except (json.JSONDecodeError, ValueError):
             data = {}
         module.data = data

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

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