I have a user script which is located in C:\Users\'myusername'\.qgis2\processing\scripts. enter image description here

I call script "plotWLayer1" containing the line

import funcPlot

User script funcPlot is also located in the same path but when I execute the script Qgis logs the following:

No module name funcPlot

I have tried adding the path using,

import os
import sys

with the same result. What am I doing wrong? My intention is to give these scripts to fellow users within my company but if I hard code sys.append() the script would have to modified per user.

Update 1: For the moment I am using the following code under the assumption that only the username for different users in my company would change but any suggestions would still be welcomed.

import getpass
username = getpass.getuser()
import sys

    Have you try to print os.getcwd() where it's searching ?

  • I did but I am not sure where it is output. I checked the log and I found some execution in C:\OSGeo4wShell\..., without the output of print() Commented Dec 15, 2017 at 9:44

For import "funcPlot" in you "plotWLayer1" you can use this script:

import imp, os.path
from qgis.core import QgsMessageLog

def import_(filename):
    (path, name) = os.path.split(filename)
    (name, ext) = os.path.splitext(name)
    print name
    print path

    (file, filename, data) = imp.find_module(name, [path])
    return imp.load_module(name, file, filename, data)

funcPlot = import_("C:\Users\'myusername'\.qgis2\processing\scripts\\funcPlot.py")

And if funcPlot.py have a function for example def myFunction()

Call it using funcPlot.myFunction()


Other way is using exePath=os.path.expanduser('~') +"\\.qgis2\\processing\\scripts" because is not necesary that all user have a C driver letter

I hope this helps you
