Pretty Imports is a Visual Studio Code Extension designed to beautify and organize Python import statements, ensuring they are in accordance with PEP 8 standards. It aims to make your Python code more readable, maintainable, and aesthetically pleasing by providing a clean and organized representation of import statements.
PEP 8 Compliant: Aligns imports with PEP 8 standards, making your code more consistent and readable.
Sorts Imports: Sorts import statements based on length.
Categorizes Imports: Organizes imports into three distinct sections:
External Package Imports
Handles Multiple Imports in parentheses.
Preserves Non-Conforming Lines: Safeguarding your code against potential loss of non-conforming lines.
How it Works
The extension categorizes and sorts the import statements as follows:
Direct Imports: Such as import os, are sorted by length and placed at the top.
External Package Imports: Like from scipy import stats, are sorted by length and placed after direct imports separated by a blank line.
Project-Specific Imports: Such as from my_project import my_module, are sorted and placed after external package imports separated by a blank line.
Non-Handled Lines: Any lines not conforming to the expected formats are preserved and included at the bottom, separated by a blank line.
from numpy import array
from scipy.stats import norm
from collections import deque
from matplotlib import pyplot
from my_project import my_module
from my_project.my_module import my_function
from my_project.sub_module import another_function
from my_project.my_module.sub_module.long_service_name import \
from my_project.my_module.sub_module.another_long_service_name import \
from my_project.my_module.sub_module.yet_another_long_service_name import \
# Non-conforming or non-handled lines here.
