Tools for inspecting contents of docker container filesystem.

Project description

containerutil.Path provides API similar to pathlib.Path for inspecting docker container file system:

import docker
import containerutil

client = docker.from_env(version='auto')
ctnr = client.containers.get('my-container')

p = containerutil.Path(ctnr, '/foo/bar/path')

p.exists()        # True if file exists (regardless of type)
p.is_file()       # True if file exists and is a regular file
p.is_symlink()    # True if file exists and is a symbolic link
p.is_fifo()       # True if file is a named pipe (FIFO)
