VS Code: Automatically Organize Python Imports

You can configure VS Code to automatically sort and organize Python imports upon saving files.

First need to install the isort package system-wide using the following command:

$ pipenv install isort --dev

Open the settings using ⇧⌘P or Ctrl+Shift+P, next search for Preferences: Configure Language Specific Settings.... Press Enter and then search for Python. In the settings.json file that will be opened, add the following settings:

"[python]": {
    "editor.codeActionsOnSave": {
        "source.organizeImports": true
    }
}

Now upon saving files with the .py extension, VS Code will automatically sort and organize the imports.
