How Import Works

Translations: en en


This talk will go over how something as simple as from packaging import version turns out to be a little complicated. The details of imports -- from how the import statement is interpreted to how to decide what object to return -- will be discussed. While the talk will discuss things from the perspective of Python 3.3 (and thus importlib), the overall semantics will (mostly) apply to older versions of Python.
