A script to detect that the import order matches Mozilla WebDev Python guidelines. Usage:

baked.py [filename] [filename..]

Filename can be a glob. Or multiple filenames. For example:

baked.py apps/*.py mkt/*.py

Baked will also accept files being piped to it, for example:

git diff-index HEAD^ --name-only | baked

Baked loads a confg file as JSON. It will look in the following places for the file:

  • the current directory for .baked
  • the users profile directory for .baked

For an example see:


The config file contains:

  • order: the list of orders of import blocks. This allows you to group your imports into categories.
  • fallback: if a category is not found for lib, what should it fall back to, for most this will be local.
  • from_order: a dictionary of sections with a boolean value for each section. If the value is false, then baked will not care that an import came before from. Default is true for each category.
  • modules: a dictionary of categories and a list of modules. This allows baked to put each module in the category.

If you'd like to exclude an import from baked add the comment #NOQA.



With one exception, we ignore that imports should be ordered CONSTANT, Class, var. Just sort by alpha, case insensitive. That's easier for everyone to parse.
