[Twisted-Python] confused on combining different py moduels to make a twisted app

That's a somewhat general question, but consider this as a solution,
in __init__.py for that package imports one or more classes from each
of the other modules.  Then, within init.py create a root object (a
resource if you're using http) and let it instantiate each of the
classes as sub-objects (children if you're using http).  That would
let you access all the functions and continue exploring, though it's
not a good design in general.

It's hard to be more specific without knowing what sort of design
you'd like to wind up with.  This is one of those questions where the
honest answer is "however you want to do it."  You may want to study
some of the examples to see the kinds of design typically used in
twisted applications and adopt one of those until you get more

How could you possibly think typing 'import skynet' was a good idea?
