a/b/c/foo.py

name = "foo"
_age = "*secret*"
from magicalimport import import_from_physical_path

# importing foo.py as the module named foo2
foo = import_from_physical_path("./a/b/c/foo.py", as_="foo2")
print(foo.name)

# cached in sys.modules, so it is ok.
import foo2
print(foo2.name)

here option

from magicalimport import import_from_physical_path

import_from_physical_path("bar.py", here="/tmp/foo", as_="bar")

star import

from magicalimport import import_from_physical_path
from magicalimport import expose_all_members

# something of like a `from foo import *`
expose_all_members(import_from_physical_path("./a/b/c/foo.py"))
print(name)  # "foo"
# print(_age)  # NameError.. because expose_all_members() doesn't expose the symbols started by "_"

# or
from magicalimport import expose_members
expose_members(import_from_physical_path("./a/b/c/foo.py"), members=["_age"])
print(_age)  # "*secret*"
