"And that's the Dude, in Los Angeles. And even if he's a lazy man... and the Dude was certainly that. Quite possibly the laziest in Los Angeles County, which would place him high in the runnin' for laziest worldwide."
Lebowski is a simple framework for globally enabling lazy imports in Python. This framework has the following advantages over others that exist:
You don't have to specify every library that you want lazyily imported.
It is fully compatible with libraries that swap out modules in sys.modules (unlike Python's native LazyLoader).
Import errors are NOT delayed to the first use of the library. Existance of the library is checked at the time of declaration of the import.
It has an extremely simple interface.
