Import py files using their relative or absolute path.
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.
>>>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.
