Allow a function to discover the module or script name of its caller, or its caller's caller.

Project description

https://travis-ci.org/drcloud/stackclimber.svg?branch=master https://img.shields.io/pypi/v/stackclimber.svg https://img.shields.io/pypi/dd/stackclimber.svg

stackclimber allows your function to find the module or script name of its caller, or of its caller’s caller.

from stackclimber import stackclimber


assert stackclimber() == __name__
assert stackclimber() == stackclimber(0)

With no arguments, it finds the current function’s module name. With 1, it finds that of its caller; with 2, that of its caller’s caller, and so forth.

This functionality can be used to implement “automatic” imports that use some information about the module into which they are being imported by overriding a module’s __getattr__.
