importing modules from Shogun to python

+1 vote
45 views

Attempting to import modules from Shogun to python from a non-standard python directory i.e. from my /home/xxx directory. Is there a way on ubuntu to selectively some modules, scripts, data from one directory and others modules, scripts from another directory. In other words, is there a file(s) that provide pointers to where these modules are located.

I have to shift a Python 2.7 program to run in Windows. Doing that has forced me to use IronPython because my program is dependent on a .dll file that uses .NET framework.

I moved all my code to Iron Python and modified it to work with the dll. But I cant import PyQt4 module into the project. Is there a way I can do that? Please Help.

I have a Ubuntu server running NGINX that logs data for me. I want to write a python script that reads my customized logs and after a little rearrangement save the new data into my DB (postgresql).

The process should run about every 5 minutes and i'm expecting large chunks of data on several 5 minute windows..

My plan for achieving this is to install python on the server, write a script and add it to cron.

My question is what the simplest way to do this? should I use any python frameworks?
For my python app I'm using Django, but on this server I just need to read a file, do some manipulation and save to DB.

I have started looking into distutils because I need to write an extension module in C (for performance reasons) and distutils seems to be the most straight-forward way.

I have had success building a C file into a Python extension module using "python setup.py build" but I am wondering what the recommended way for using that module during development is. While writing Python code I am used to just run the code from the source directory. But the built extension modules .so of course does not just end up on sys.path magically.

So how do I run my code so it will find the built extension module? Do I pass the output directory on the command line manually or is there some other solution? I would like to still be able to run the code from the source directory as I am using PyCharm to edit and debug the code.

I'm trying to write a function that programmatically obtains and returns the exact location of all first-level modules for all installed packages.

For example, if the packages named 'django' and 'django-debug-toolbar' are installed, I'd like this function to return something like:

installed_modules()
/Users/my_user/.virtualenvs/my_venv/lib/python2.6/site-packages/django
/Users/my_user/.virtualenvs/my_venv/src/debug_toolbar

That is, this function needs to consider all installed packages, including those that have been installed in "edit" mode (i.e. in the src/ folder). Note also that the main module for the 'django-debug-toolbar' is in fact named 'debug_toolbar'.

So far the closest I've been to retrieving the list of first-level modules is as follows:

 import os
 import pkg_resources
 import setuptools

 pkgs = set()

 for dist in pkg_resources.working_set:
 if os.path.isdir(dist.location):
 for pkg in setuptools.find_packages(dist.location):
 if '.' not in pkg:
 pkgs.add(pkg)

The idea is then to loop through that list of modules, import them and get their exact locations by fetching their __file__ attribute values.

However, this feels very hackish and I don't think it's actually quite correct either. I'm sure there must be a better way. If possible I'd also like to avoid having to use setuptools.

Does anyone have any tips on how to achieve this?

I have an application which uses extensively python 2.7.6 (CPython).

The issue that I see is the following: "If there are only pyc files, the loading time of the application is much more than if I have pyc and py files. It is behind with 2 minutes more than if it had py files"

Do you have any idea why this is happening?
