I'm developing a project that uses several independent modules, but all related to the same project.
However, I face this choice: module names with underscore vs. namespaces.
For example there is this tree:
Foo |-Bar1 | |-Bar2 |-Foo1 | |-Foo2 | |-Foo3
Let's say for example, that Foo3 depends on Bar2, but Foo2 and Bar2 are standalone.
What are the best practices regarding performance, and ease to package (to pypi) and code readability:
or using namespaces:
It is more beautiful to use module and namespace, but on pip, independent packages are saved in different location. I've also read there is a bug when combining package installed from pypi and editable package that uses the same namespace
see also : https://github.com/pypa/pip/issues/3
Also, another problem about namespace is that Foo can't have any content and can't be a package (a namespace module must contain only a namespace declaration) like read here : https://pythonhosted.org/setuptools/setuptools.html#namespace-packages (Or I didn't understand)
