python imports

python imports are weird in the sense that you can't just do import "../../x.py".
Depending on your file structure, things can get a bit complicated. Here's my fix.

(based on this http://stackoverflow.com/questions/8951255/import-script-from-a-parent-directory)

file structure:

Project_Parent/  
├── moduleA.py
└── Application/
|   ├── app.py
|   └── Module/
|       ├── __init__.py
|       └── moduleA.py
└── Tests/
    ├── __init__.py
    └── test_moduleA.py

In this scenario, Tests is my unit test directory and I want test_moduleA.py to import moduleA.py
Application directory is the parent of the project so we need to add it to sys.path for python to be able to find it.

import sys  
sys.path.insert(0, os.path.join('Project_Parent', 'Application'))  
from Module.moduleA import function_in_moduleA
