isort 3.9.0

by Timothy Crosley

isort is an open source and free software project written in Python and designed to act as a plugin for the Kate and Pate text editors, helping Python developers to sort imports alphabetically. The utility can also separate Python imports into sections automatically.

The plugin comprises of a command-line utility, a Python library and a bunch of plugins for various text editors, allowing you to effortlessly and quickly sort all your Python imports. At the moment, isort supports Python 2.6 through 3.4 and uses the pies tool to sort imports in style without outputting ugly code.

I want to see it in action!

The following lines of code will show you how your Python imports are “sorted” when not using the isort plugin:

from my_lib import Object
import os
from my_lib import Object3
from my_lib import Object2
import sys
from third_party import lib15, lib1, lib2, lib3, lib4, lib5, lib6, lib7, lib8, lib9, lib10, lib11, lib12, lib13, lib14
import sys
from __future__ import absolute_import
from third_party import lib3

And now, we will show you how the above example can look when using the isort plugin, either on the Kate and Pate text editors, or standalone from the command-line:

from __future__ import absolute_import

import os
import sys

from third_party import (lib1, lib2, lib3, lib4, lib5, lib6, lib7, lib8,
 lib9, lib10, lib11, lib12, lib13, lib14, lib15)

from my_lib import Object, Object2, Object3


Under the hood and availability

The isort plugin is written entirely in the Python programming language. It is compatible with the Kate (KDE 4.13 or later) and Pate 2.0 or higher text editors, and it’s available for download as a universal source archive that must be configured and compiled prior to installation. isort has been successfully tested on 32-bit and 64-bit instruction set architectures.
