It looks like you want to want to reload an already loaded module. You can use the reload function from the importlib library.


import foo

from importlib import reload

while True:

    if is_changed(foo):

        foo = reload(foo)

please note that the above code will work only for python 3.4 and above for python 3.0 to 3.3 import imp instead of import importlib
