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 = ''
pylookwhat.lookwhat( filename, what, lookwhat  )

print what

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


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

python -m pylookwhat patch false


A = "Hello World"


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