Project description


Build Status

Tool to automatically replace import * imports with explicit imports

Requires pyflakes. Somewhat inspired by autoflake.


  • Only works with relative imports at the moment
  • Does not work correctly with recursive star imports
  • Assumes only names in the current file are used by star imports


$ removestar # Shows diff but does not edit

$ removestar -i # Edits in-place

$ removestar module/ # Modifies every Python file in module recursively
