As your project becomes larger and larger, you naturally break it out into several Python modules. It is complicated to find modules that are located in different subfolders. One practical way to get around this limitation is to use the init.py module.
- [Instructor] Previously,…we saw how to avoid spaghetti code.…We can use the init.py module…to connect different Python modules…by entering code into it.…This video will show how to do this.…When we create a new Python project…using the PyDev plugin for the Eclipse IDE,…it automatically creates an init.py module.…We can create it ourselves manually…when not using Eclipse.…The init.py module is usually empty…and has a size of zero kilobytes.…
We will use this empty module…to connect our different modules.…We will create a new GUI,…similar to the one we created in the previous video.…How to do it:…As a project becomes larger and larger,…we naturally break it out into several Python modules.…Using a modern IDE, such as Eclipse,…it is surprisingly complicated to find modules…that are located in different subfolders…either above or below the code that needs to import it.…
