Python utilities used for General Functions not grouped in specific packages

Project description

Christopher H. Todd's Python Library For General Tasks

The ctodd-python-lib-general project is responsible for general tasks that have not been put in specific libraries. Will basically be a dumping ground for one-off tasks that are repeatable but would not call for a specific lib that can be expanded.

def download_file(url, file_location=None, overwrite=False):

        If no location is provided, the file is downloaded in the current

        url (string): Full URL path to download file from.
        file_location (string): Full path to where file will be stored.
        overwrite (Boolean): Whether or not to overwrite file if it already
        file_location (string): Full path to where file was be stored.

Example Scripts

Example executable Python scripts/modules for testing and interacting with the library. These show example use-cases for the libraries and can be used as templates for developing with the libraries or to use as one-off development efforts.



  • Relies on f-string notation, which is limited to Python3.6. A refactor to remove these could allow for development with Python3.0.x through 3.5.x


  • Unittest framework in place, but lacking tests
