Simple object-oriented access to a filesystem directory tree

Project description

=========
FS-Hopper
=========

FS-Hopper is a simplistic and very thin abstraction layer for
accessing a filesystem directory tree in an object-oriented style.
The only two known filesystem nodes are directories and trees. Both
are implemented as new-style classes. Each method call to them (e.g.
DirectoryNode.get_childs()) will return instances of either
DirectoryNode or FileNode, allowing easy traversal throughout the
tree.

Additionally, you can define a set_root, similar to (but not really)
GNU/chroot. It is prohibited to create Nodes above set_root making it
easy for you to jail your code into a certain directory within the
filesystem.

=====
Usage
=====

Jail code into /tmp and create a working directory:

#!/usr/bin/env python2

import fs_hopper
fs_hopper.set_root('/tmp')

workdir = fs_hopper.Directory('/tmp/fs_hopper')
workdir.mkdir()
print workdir

Recursively get all configuration files of some_app

#!/usr/bin/env python2

import os
import fs_hopper

name = os.path.expanduser('~/.config/some_app')
confdir = fs_hopper.Directory(name)
confs = confdir.get_subs('*.conf')
print confs

Read /etc/passwd

#!/usr/bin/env python2

import fs_hopper

passwd = fs_hopper.File('/etc/passwd')
print passwd.get_content()
