Question :

Can you define aliases for imported modules in Python?

In Python, is it possible to define an alias for an imported module?

For instance:

import a_ridiculously_long_module_name

…so that is has an alias of ‘short_name’.

Answer #1:

import a_ridiculously_long_module_name as short_name

also works for

import module.submodule.subsubmodule as short_name

from relative_module import identifier as name

Answer #3:

If you’ve done:

import long_module_name

you can also give it an alias by:

lmn = long_module_name

There’s no reason to do it this way in code, but I sometimes find it useful in the interactive interpreter.
