Welcome to importlib-metadata documentation!

importlib_metadata supplies a backport of importlib.metadata, enabling early access to features of future Python versions and making functionality available for older Python versions. Users are encouraged to use the Python standard library where suitable and fall back to this library for future compatibility. Developers looking for detailed API descriptions should refer to the standard library documentation.

The documentation here includes a general usage guide.
