I'm trying to test some of my custom tools, written for a ArcCatalog python addin. This is my first attempt to use Pro, without the convenience and the power we have with ArcCatalog (but hoping the idea: Add Stand Alone Data Catalog Like ArcCatalog to ArcGIS Pro will still happen so that this isn't as critical a test ....please vote up the idea! ).
I have several blahUtils.py type scripts to separate/organize my common functions. These are located in my Scripts folder in my addin file structure and I import into my tools/scripts using
from blahUtils import *
from moreBlahUtils import *
rather than in a library in the python folder....that is, keep the addin all together.
This structure works well in ArcCatalog running is as an built/installed addin or from the Toolbox/Tool used to create the addin.
Putting aside the differences between Python 2.x and 3.x for the time being, how would I import the utility python scripts within my main tool script? I have read thru
Python migration from 10.x to ArcGIS Pro—ArcPy Get Started | ArcGIS Desktop (no, I have not run the 2to3 tool yet)
but those seem to refer to fairly standard modules. I would like to keep my scripts in the folder structure for my toolbox (i.e. the addin structure) if possible.
The error I am getting
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "\\<server>\c$\Users\<user>\_MyPyAddins\dwcUpdateMasterFGDB\Install\scripts\01-CopyDWCMasterSDEtoFGDB.py", line 47, in <module>
from ADFGUtils import *
File "\\<server>\c$\Users\<user>\_MyPyAddins\dwcUpdateMasterFGDB\Install\scripts\ADFGUtils.py", line 134
self.__dict__ = self"""
SyntaxError: (unicode error) 'unicodeescape' codec can't decode bytes in position 188-189: truncated \UXXXXXXXX escape
Failed to execute (01-CopyDWCMasterSDEtoFGDB).
Is basically telling me it can not find the first custom script from ADFGutils import * I am trying to import.
Any suggestions on where I need to put these and how I would refer to them? Again, I prefer to keep in the same folder with/near my toolbox.
