How do you get around the issue of reading data files from within the zip file? For instance, taking a piece of code like this...
Read some data from a json file which side-by-side the module
data_file = os.path.join(
with open(data_file, 'r') as f:
data = json.load(f)
Zipping up the foo module and adding the zip path to the sys.path, and calling that method returns this err...
FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'c:\\pyt\\foo.zip\\foo\\bar.json'
Which I assume is because open() expects a directly accessible folder structure. Its not logic I use too often, but loading stylesheets dynamically onto qt widgets is a good use case.
How do you get around this issue, or do you keep all data separate from source code as a rule?
