I'm trying to import modules dynamically inside sub-folders of the plugin and can't seem to make it work. My current hierarchy looks as follow:
| | |
| | |_file_A.py
| | |
| | |_file_B.py
Would like to be able to access the file_A, file_B and file_C. Do you have to include an empty __init__ file inside each folder?
Apologies if this has been replied before. Just can't seem to find an answer.
Thank you very much in advance!

Yes do it like you will do for any python module, make an empty __init__.py
And then after that you could use from .modules._folder_A._file_A import MyClassA
Moreover I'm sure you already read it but I suggest you to read https://plugincafe.maxon.net/topic/8229/10727_best-practice-for-imports
Here a exemple of my plugin RefractiveIndexImporter https://github.com/gr4ph0s/RefractiveIndex-Importer wich use Niklas py-localimport class in order to make safe import.
Hope it's help
