 python import module or namespace from namepsace variable ?
this is very important to me, i want import a module or package (namespace) from another namespace variable.


import mydir # imports namepace

module_foo = get_module_from_name_space("foo", namespace = mydir) # imports foo module from mydir. that means from mydir import foo expression but I must import foo in that way, with this function.

print(module_foo == # prints True


is there a function like get_module_from_name_space ?
you should be able to do this with importlib
You'll have to read the docs, I have used it, but it's been a while
If you look at my github account:
module i use it there
you may also be able to use pkgutil

sorry, i couldn't find the function I am looking for in your file

can you post this function to here ?
Try here: importlib, there are even some examples.
If it ain't broke, I just haven't gotten to it yet.
OS: Windows 10, openSuse 42.3, freeBSD 11, Raspian "Stretch"
Python 3.6.5, IDE: PyCharm 2018 Community Edition

I tried too many times with importlib module
given I think it's a matter of proper organising the package (i.e., etc.) and understanding the import mechanism rather than using some complicated import scheme.
i even think the two threads should be merged
the python import system soooooooooooooooo bad,
Maybe this will help?

importlib keep on changing - and remain being scantily (understatement of the century Wall ) documented
Test everything in a Python shell (iPython, Azure Notebook, etc.)
  • Someone gave you an advice you liked? Test it - maybe the advice was actually bad.
  • Someone gave you an advice you think is bad? Test it before arguing - maybe it was good.
  • You posted a claim that something you did not test works? Be prepared to eat your hat.

can you write a function like function (get_module_from_name_psace) in my first reply

is it really bad or simply you don't understand it?

given the folder structure in the other thread a and __all__ property in it would allow you to do star import. Not that is a good practice :-)
