In the current QGIS development snapshot the SEXTANTE toolbox has been merged into QGIS and is now known as "processing". This is a good step, but the previous import command doesn't work anymore.

from sextante.core.Sextante import Sextante # returns an import error

How can i import the sextante bindings in current development versions and the upcoming QGIS 2.0 ?

from processing.core.Processing import Processing


from processing.core.ProcessingConfig import Setting, ProcessingConfig

From what I can see, every occurrence of Sextante should be replaced with Processing and every occurrence of sextante with processing

thanks,but the errors carry on. Do you know what about from processing.core.SextanteConfig import Setting, SextanteConfig ? Has anyone posted an overview with the new locations? – Curlew Sep 5 '13 at 9:15
