simple import with python path management

Project Description


Simple Import Library for Python

Supports importing functions or class methods from files not in the Python Path.

Using Simport

import simport

# For modules already in the Python Path function = simport.load(‘mymodule.myfunction’) class_method = simport.load(‘mymodule:MyClass.mymethod’) klass = simport.load(‘mymodule:MyClass’) # uninstanstiated.

# For modules not in the Python Path function = simport.load(‘/path/to/dir|module_name:myfunction’) class_method = simport.load(‘/path/to/dir|module_name:MyClass.mymethod’)

Look at the tests for some interesting naming conventions for specifying relative modules, etc.

Running Tests

From the simport root directory, run tox
