loading Flask blueprints dynamically
I wanted to be able to add and load plug-ins for a new system I’m working on without knowing what they were called at development time.
Ultimately, I created a very basic skeleton for doing this here:
I got a little help from a project that was doing something similar too.
Basically, it boils down to using the Python imp module, which ends up looking a little like this:
fp, pathname, description = imp.find_module('my_plugin', ['plugin-folder']) print fp, pathname, description mod = imp.load_module('my_plugin', fp, pathname, description)
