How to load all modules in a folder?


List all python (.py) files in the current folder and put them as __all__ variable in __init__.py

from os.path import dirname, basename, isfile, joinimport globmodules = glob.glob(join(dirname(__file__), "*.py"))__all__ = [ basename(f)[:-3] for f in modules if isfile(f) and not f.endswith('__init__.py')]


Add the __all__ Variable to __init__.py containing:

__all__ = ["bar", "spam", "eggs"]

Update in 2017: you probably want to use importlib instead.

Make the Foo directory a package by adding an __init__.py. In that __init__.py add:

import barimport eggsimport spam

Since you want it dynamic (which may or may not be a good idea), list all py-files with list dir and import them with something like this:

import osfor module in os.listdir(os.path.dirname(__file__)):    if module == '__init__.py' or module[-3:] != '.py':        continue    __import__(module[:-3], locals(), globals())del module

Then, from your code do this:

import Foo

You can now access the modules with

Foo.barFoo.eggsFoo.spam

etc. from Foo import * is not a good idea for several reasons, including name clashes and making it hard to analyze the code.
