Developing for Splunk Enterprise

How to use `import mysplunksearch` instead of `$splunk cmd python myslplunksearch`?

Path Finder

On the same machine that I am running Splunk, I want to integrate python splunk search results inside python code outside of the Splunk directory.

For example inside Splunk directory we can do the following (splunkbase source) :

$ splunk cmd python my_searcher.py 

How can I now extend this to outside without needing to use splunk cmd, for example, I would like to import my new splunk search module into other python code using this instead:

>>> import my_searcher

You should probably be using the Splunk Python SDK, instead of calling the command-line utilities.
