oxidized_importer Python Extension¶
oxidized_importer is a Python extension module maintained as part of
the PyOxidizer project that allows you to:
Install a custom, high-performance module importer (
OxidizedFinder) to service Python
importstatements and resource loading (potentially from memory).
Scan the filesystem for Python resources (source modules, bytecode files, package resources, distribution metadata, etc) and turn them into Python objects.
Serialize Python resource data into an efficient binary data structure for loading into an
OxidizedFinderinstance. This facilitates producing a standalone resources blob that can be distributed with a Python application which contains all the Python modules, bytecode, etc required to power that application.
oxidized_importer is automatically compiled into applications built
with PyOxidizer. It can also be built as a standalone extension module and
used with regular Python installs.
