How to Create A Module In Python


Hey fellas! In this article we’re gonna discuss about How to Create A Module In Python. Python is a powerful as well as friendly programming language. It is used to develop desktop apps, web, as well as pretty awesome softwares. Python is also a powerful tool for data science. So, before going further into the topic lets know What is a Python Module?

A Python module is simply a python file consisting of python codes that may include classes, functions, variables,etc. It’s a code written in python which we can reuse for our convenience. With this simple definition lets move on to our main topic.

How to Create A Module In Python?

Creating a module in Python is as simple as creating a python program. The only two steps you have to follow are:

Step 1: Write a bunch of codes for module.

First of all create a python file. You can use your favorite text editor and start. Write the functions you want to have in your code and save it as a Python executable file (.py file).

The codes I have written for examples are listed below:

def add(a,b):

def subt(a,b):

def mult(a,b):

def divide(a,b):

After I wrote these codes I saved it as because I’m doing math here and it’s easy to remember. You can name a module as you like like, but be sure to make it easy to remember so that you can use it as per necessity.

Step 2: Use it in your code

Next step is also very easy. You have to import the module you have created by using

import module_name

import newmath   (in our case)

The thing left to do is using it. You can access the functions in your module by using


newmath.add(1,2)                             In our case.
