class bpy.types.BlendDataLibraries(bpy_struct)

Collection of libraries

Type :boolean, default False, (readonly)


Parameters:value (boolean) – Value
load(filepath, link=False, relative=False)

Returns a context manager which exposes 2 library objects on entering. Each object has attributes matching which are lists of strings to be linked.

  • filepath (string) – The path to a blend file.
  • link (bool) – When False reference to the original file is lost.
  • relative (bool) – When True the path is stored relative to the open blend file.

# the loaded objects can be accessed from 'data_to' outside of the context
