This is my problem but the solutions don’t work inside Glyphs app—is there a way to do this?
The parent folder of what? Which module? And why do you not simply install the module?
Sorry let me clarify: in the Scripts folder, I have a bunch of scripts that rely on another file, but due to my folder structure some are in a level deeper, so I want to import a script from a parent folder. But the methods in the above that I posted doens’t work?
Adding a folder with sys.path.append doesn’t work, nor does adding init.py files?
Put the file you want to import in the root level of the Scripts folder.
I played around with this a bit and this my simples solution:
import os, sys parentPath = os.path.abspath("..") if parentPath not in sys.path: sys.path.insert(0, parentPath) from TestModule import TestMethod
TestModule is a python file in the parent folder of the script.
This solution still works, but is cumbersome and unintuitive. Is there a more elegant way of importing from a file in a Script folder?
This should be fixed in vanilla now.
