How do I forcefully import all functions/macros from my Package into my testing en

How do I forcefully import all functions/macros from my Package into my testing environment. I currently have this monstrosity at the top of my runtests.jl

import AutoActuary: add_namespace, add_t_index, has_symbol, is_t_dottable, t_to_dot, ispreprocessable, remove_linenumbernodes, 
                    get_variables, t_linearcombinations, replace_variables, replace_variables, get_t_offsets, cycleclusters, 
                    add_name!, add_edge!, set_name!, get_name, get_id, has_name, create_a_dependancy_graph

Wouldn’t using AutoActuary do the trick?

Unless the issue is that they aren’t exported.

Yes, they aren’t exported, but I still want to test then without having to type or import foo explicitely.

I actually don’t think explicit imports are very monstruous at all. I’d be less comfortable with importing all the non-exported members of a module with some hack than just writing things out.But perhaps you and I differ in a sense of style. (edited)

I like explicit import and also likes to hide most of my internal functions, but in the case of testing, I would like to have something as close to “living in the same namespace” as possible.

What happen if you implemented the tests within the module itself and then just ran them from runtests.jl ?

for i in names(AutoActuary, all = true);try Main.eval(Meta.parse("import AutoActuary: " * string(i))); catch e; end; end

import AutoActuary as aa and then etc?

@Mark Kittisopikul, like having them in a function and then call that function from runtests.jl? I haven’t thought about that, that might work. But I think it’s nice having all the tests at the testy location.

I think I’m going to use this function, and then when I get closer to a “first release” remove it with the explicit names.

exportall() = begin
    for i in names(AutoActuary, all=true)
        if i in (:eval, :include)
            Main.eval(Meta.parse("import AutoActuary: $(i)"))
        catch e

Hmmm, but you end up losing all the VSCode clickiness action.
