Python "from [dot]package import ..." syntax
Looking through a Django tutorial I saw the following syntax:
from .models import Recipe, Ingredient, Instruction
Can someone explain how the .models works / what it does exactly? Usually I have:
from myapp.models import
How does it work without the myapp part in front of .models?
Possible duplicate: What does a . in an import statement in Python mean?
. is a shortcut that tells it search in current package before rest of the
PYTHONPATH. So, if a same-named module
Recipe exists somewhere else in your
PYTHONPATH, it won't be loaded.
