Sidestep import and load Python files as relative paths

Project description

Build Status Smuggler on PyPI

Sidestep import and load Python files as relative paths.

Intended for one-off imports (e.g. global configuration). Currently, thesmuggler can’t import files that import other local packages, but you can smuggle files that have already smuggled other files.

Tested and working on Python 2.7 and up.


pip install thesmuggler, then:

from thesmuggler import smuggle

# À la `import weapons`
weapons = smuggle('')

# À la `from contraband import drugs, alcohol`
drugs, alcohol = smuggle('drugs', 'alcohol', source='')

# À la `from contraband import drugs as dope, alcohol as booze`
dope, booze = smuggle('drugs', 'alcohol', source='')
