Please note that I’m referring to Python 2.x here, not Python 3.x.
I have a simple Python project laid out like this:
my-project/ src/ __init__.py main.py tests/ test_main.py
I’d like to use
test_main.py to test
main.py (unsurprisingly). But how do I import
main.py into my test? If you’re a NodeJS fanboy like myself, you might think you can do something like this:
Right? WRONG. Take your sensible, Bash style imports back to Nodeland, you glorified jQuery developer.
In Python, you need to do two things. First, create a blank
__init__.py file inside
tests/. This makes it into a package or something. Then, you can use this syntax to import the file:
from src import main
And then you’re good.
