Compute a single hash of the file contents of a directory.

Project description

A simple module for creating a single hash for a directory of files, with file contents; ignoring any metadata such as file name. Options exist to also exclude specific files or files with specific extensions.


from checksumdir import dirhash

directory  = '/path/to/directory/'
md5hash    = dirhash(directory, 'md5')
sha1hash   = dirhash(directory, 'sha1', excluded_files=['package.json'])
sha256hash = dirhash(directory, 'sha256', excluded_extensions=['pyc'])

Or to use the CLI:

# Defaults to md5.
$ checksumdir /path/to/directory

# Create sha1 hash:
$ checksumdir -a sha1 /path/to/directory

# Exclude files:
$ checksumdir -e <files> /path/to/directory

# Exclude files with specific extensions:
$ checksumdir -x <extensions> /path/to/directory

# Follow soft links:
$ checksumdir --follow-links /path/to/directory
