How to import python class file from same directory?


I have a directory in my Python 3.3 project called /models.

from my I simply do a

from models import *

in my

__all__ = ["Engine","EngineModule","Finding","Mapping","Rule","RuleSet"]
from models.engine import Engine,EngineModule
from models.finding import Finding
from models.mapping import Mapping
from models.rule import Rule
from models.ruleset import RuleSet

This works great from my application.

I have a model that depends on another model, such that in my I need to import in When I do: from finding import Finding

I get the error No Such Module exists.

How can I import class B from file A in the same module/directory?

Since you are using Python 3, which disallows these relative imports (it can lead to confusion between modules of the same name in different packages).

Use either:

from models import finding


import models.finding

or, probably best:

from . import finding  # The . means "from the same directory as this module"

Apparently I can do: from .finding import Finding and this works.

And the answer below reflects this as well so I guess this is reasonably correct.

I’ve fixed up my file naming and moved my tests to a different directory and I am running smoothly now. Thanks!
