Project description

It’s like os.walk, but backwards… and on a bicycle.

## Core Features

  • Walk directories up, down, or both directions
  • Search for files, directories, or both item types
  • Return first item found immediately, or list of all matching items
  • 100% Test Coverage (pytest)
  • 100% PEP8 Compliant (pep8, autopep8)

## Motivation?

The primary use case for Backpedal is finding files from within your current directory, and/or parent(s). For example, both Vagrant and Fabric support running from nested sub-directories within a project while loading their associated Vagrantfile or from the root (parent) project directory by searching from the current directory and upward.
