Warning: This post has not been modified for over 2 years. For technical posts, make sure that it is still relevant.

Package namespacing can help organize modules within a larger project. It can also help show that a package belongs to an organization.

For example, let’s say you want to have a module named companyname.component. Then you want to have the following project structure.


Note that there is no __init__.py under companyname.

Then in your setup.py denote where to find the packages using a namespace.

from setuptools import setup, find_namespace_packages
