Import py files using their relative or absolute path.

Project description

import_file

import_file is meant to import a python script from a normal file path. Relative (dotted) imports are complicated, and fixing sys.path just feels wrong.

Usage examples:

>>>from import_file import import_file
>>>mylib = import_file('c:\mylib.py')
>>>another = import_file('relative_subdir/another.py')

So now you aren’t limited to importing only within your package or trail of __init__.py files.

This should work for python 2.5-3.2 and it’s public domain, have fun.
