Welcome to importlib_resources documentation!¶
importlib_resources is a library which provides for access to resources
in Python packages. It provides functionality similar to
Basic Resource Access API, but without all of the overhead and performance
In our terminology, a resource is a file tree that is located within an importable Python package. Resources can live on the file system or in a zip file, with support for other loader classes that implement the appropriate API for reading resources.
importlib_resources supplies a backport of
enabling early access to features of future Python versions and making
functionality available for older Python versions. Users are encouraged to
use the Python standard library where suitable and fall back to
this library for future compatibility. Developers looking for detailed API
descriptions should refer to the standard library documentation.
