Sort imports simply

Project description

Usage [-h] [--commit] [--dry_run] [--fail] [targets [targets ...]]


Sort the import directives in Python files, excluding __future__.

Positional arguments


One or more Python files or directories with Python files. Without arguments, runs simp on the current directory.

Optional arguments

-h, --help

Show this help message and exit

--commit, -c

Git commit the changes

--dry_run, -d

If set, do not make the changes to the Python files, but just list the diffs.

--fail, -f

If set, the program fails if any changes need to be made. This is useful for a commit hook to check if all imports are sorted.


I wanted to sort my Python includes with no fuss. simp finds the first block of unindented import statements, and sorts them. Any comments between import lines bubble up to the top in their original order.
