oo view of file paths and names, subclassed from bytes/str/unicode

Project description

Tired of calling a function for every path manipulation you need to do?

Is:

>>> path, filename = os.path.split(some_name)
>>> basename, ext = os.path.splitext(filename)
>>> basename = basename + '_01'
>>> new_name = os.path.join(path, basename+ext)

wearing on your nerves?

In short, are you filled with antipathy [1] for os.path?

Then get antipathy and work with Path:

>>> from antipathy import Path
>>> some_name = Path('/home/ethan/source/my_file.txt')
>>> backups = Path('/home/ethan/backup/')
>>> print some_name.path
'/home/ethan/source/'
>>> print some_name.ext
'.txt'
>>> print some_name.exists()
True  # (well, if it happens to exist at this moment ;)
>>> backup = backups / some_name.filename + '_01' + some_name.ext
>>> print backup
'/home/ethan/backup/my_file_01.txt'
>>> some_name.copy(backup)

Because Path is a subclass of bytes/str/unicode, it can still be passed to other functions that expect a bytes/str/unicode object and work seamlessly [2].

[2] in most cases – there are a few places that do a type check instead of an isinstance check.
