Project description

Sometimes when we need to reference other project’s settings to do something, we can use execfile to parse file get variable inside. But a few things can make it difficult:

  1. Dependency package(s) are not installed
  2. Relative module(s) not in sys.path
  3. Local module name confused due to scoping.

Use pylookwhat to solve these

import pylookwhat

what = {}
lookwhat = [ 'A', 'B'  ]
filename = 'what.py'
pylookwhat.lookwhat( filename, what, lookwhat  )

print what

what.py

A = { "Hello": "World" }
B = [ 1, 2, 3 ]

Patch

Modify variables in script. Backup file will be named with datetime.

python -m pylookwhat patch target.py source.py false

target.py

A="Hello"
B=123

source.py

A = "Hello World"

Patched target.py

A = "Hello World"
B=123
1.0.3
Fix missing text when patch with dict variables
