Packages in Python | Installing Python Packages

In this article, we’ll read about python packages and installing Packages in Python.

Though python packages do not play a very major role in programming, yet learning them is not only easy but also beneficial for runtime user-oriented projects.

What are Packages in Python?

Python Packages are the text file holders that provide a user interface in the proper execution of the code. They act as a server that manipulates the already executed code in the run time.

The package holds a simple method of extracting the function from libraries and executing it in the code.

Importing Module from a Package in Python

Packages can be imported from a simple dot function from the library of the code. And it is necessary to import any package without actually using it in a code, to save the memory of the code.

Python Package Import Syntax

import.start
from library.package 

The content of a.py(syntax): The content of any normal package can be executed only when it is imported correctly.

Here is an example of importing a package.

def hello():
    print("Hello, function 'hello' from module 'a' “saying")

Complex Package in Python

Let’s see in the following example how we can create a more complex package within the run time.

|-- effects
|   |-- __init__.py
|   |-- reverse.py
|   `-- surround.py
|-- filters
|   |-- equalizer.py
|   |-- __init__.py
|-- formats
|   |-- aiffread.py
|   |-- aiffwrite.py
|   |-- wavread.py
|   `-- wavwrite.py
`-- __init__.py 

This makes the example of a complex package, which means that there are multiple functionalities within the same package.

Sub-Packages: This is a subclass of packages that holds the defined variable. It can be imported only when the main package is imported in the code. These sub-packages provide a graphical interface for the users to interact in a package.

Importing Complete Package in Python

We will add a module ‘hi’ (filename: hi.py) to the picture directory. The complete package can again be downloaded as a bzip-file within the run time. The packages can be imported from the main directory as well.

Syntax to import Complete Package in Python

from pic6 import *

So we get the comforting message that the picture package has been imported.

But sometimes in internal debugging, the bugs of the packages are not removed, this can be simplified by directly importing packages from the idle statement.

Code:

for VAL in ['WHEN','WHERE', 'WHY']:
    print(VAL, VAL in dir())

Output:

WHEN False
WHERE False
WHY False
>>>

Importing a (* )Module from a Package

This can be done by simply extracting the module from the library function. This imports the desired module function in one package, and also allows the user to develop a new path for the package.

Code:

>>> from math import pow
print(pow(4,2))

Output:

16.0

__init__.py: The package folder by default contains a special file called __init__.py, which stores the package’s content within the run time for user-specific codes. It serves two basic purposes:

  1. The python inti__ executes the code by extracting functions from the library.
  2. __init__.py : It only imports the user specific packages from the main source file.

Code:

from math import pow

x=pow(7,8)
print("power() : ", x)

Output:

power() : 5764801.0
>>>

Install Python Package Globally

Once a package is installed globally, it takes the handle of all the other functions in the runtime. This also allows the user to import functions from the code which was previously executed.

Example to Import Python Package globally

from setuptools import setup
setup(name='firstpackage',
author='TechVidvan.com',
license='true',
packages=['firstpackage'],
zip_safe=False

Python Package Initialization

To initialize the module, a coder needs to import the module from the library function, and then need to copy it into the main code.

The initialization of packages plays a vital role in any programmed code which the user defines, to make the code more informative and calculative.

Writing Packages in Python

Writing a package is very simple, it can be done by using the namespace and the variables. It is necessary to reload the package again and again before inserting a new function in the code.

Writing a package is something not everyone can do, hence few predefined samples are already given in the python library.

Creating README.md: This is mostly used for user-defined csv files. This also allows the user to define new areas of packages from the previously used modules.

Installing your newly uploaded package: To install a package, a user should be aware of a simple method of writing a command in the idle sheet of python.

Example:

python3 -m pip install 

Uploading the Distribution Archives

Uploading the packages is simple, one needs to copy them from the main file and then simply insert in the code with an extension of .importcopy.

Syntax

python3 -m pip install 

Install Python Package Globally

Package installation is a very easy step and necessarily it should be done in a python library.

Python.global-package

Generating Distribution Archives

To generate the packages, the coder simply needs to import them from the library function in the run time. This is easily possible when the idle sheets support the graphics of the packages.

python3 -m pip install 

Conclusion

This article covers all the information about python packages, their run time, allocations, and functions. Python packages are not much in practical use, but they surely add more to your knowledge.
