The 'yapyutils' package provides miscellaneous low-level Python utilities.

Project description

The ‘yapyutils’ - Yet Another Python Utils - package provides miscellaneous Python utilities for the adaptation of platform independent APIs of the low-level part of the software stack. These are e.g. used for extensions of the setuptools and distutils, thus reduce the package dependency and avoid circular dependencies whenever possible by using standard packages and classes only. The more complex and complete data packages are provided for higher application layer functionality.

The current release contains:

  • yapyutils.modules

    A utility to locate and load modules by a given name and/or file system path name, based on the sys.path variable.

  • yapyutils.files

    Search and location of files, e.g. modules and configuration files.


    Simple help for command line interfaces.

  • yapyutils.config

    Configuration file support, in particular for the initial setup of software packages.
