  • Getting the Most Out of Python Imports

    by Eric Snow

    To really take advantage of Python you must understand how imports work and how to use them effectively. In this talk we'll discuss both of these. After a short introduction to imports, we'll dive right in and look at how customizing import behavior can make all your wildest dreams come true.

    Python's import statement has been a powerful feature since the first release, and only gotten better with age. Understanding how imports work under the hood will let you take advantage of that power.

    A big key to customizing Python's imports is the importers introduced by PEP 302. That's a tool that you want in your belt! We'll be covering such import hooks as well as a couple other customization methods.
