How can I tell which module/script has just run this script in Python?
I have a module called
detector.py, and I want to import the module
Vimba into it only if
detector.py is being imported by
experiment.py. Is this importer-specific conditional importing possible?
If I import this module (
detector.py) into a different module, say
test.py, I don’t want to try to import
I’ve tried checking
__name__ to see if it tells me who my importer is, but I only get the general module path of this module

You can use
sys.modules to check if a module has been imported.
import sys if 'experiment' in sys.modules: import Vimba
