Project description

Explorer Menu

A python module to help creating explorer menus for Windows Explorer.

How to use

Defining items

Items can either be:

  • Action items - items with a command associated to them
node('Label', 'cmd.exe /K echo action')
  • Container items - items that may contain other container items and/or action items
node('Root Label', node(...), node(...), ...)

Registering items

Simply call the register method of any item and it will be registered, along with all children items:

node('Label', 'cmd.exe /K echo action').register()

node('Root Label', node(...), node(...), node(...)).register()

After items are registered you will be able to find them by right clicking in an empty area of any folder of your Windows Explorer.

Removing items

Simply call the remove method of any item and it will be removed, along with all children items:

node('Label', 'cmd.exe /K echo action').remove()

node('Root Label', node(...), node(...), node(...)).remove()

Building commands

You can also use the cmd(command, keep_cmd_window=False) method to create commands:

from explorermenu import cmd

# explicitly invoking cmd.exe
node('Label', 'cmd.exe /K echo action')

# same as above, but building command with cmd() method
node('Label', cmd('echo action', keep_cmd_window=True))

Example:

from explorermenu.menu_items import node
from explorermenu import cmd

# a single action item
single_action_item = node('Root action', cmd('echo Root action', keep_cmd_window=True))

# a nested set of items
nested_set = \
    node('Root',
         node('Child 1',
              node('Grand child 1',
                   node('Grandgrand child 1', cmd('echo Grandgrand child 1 action', keep_cmd_window=True)),
                   node('Grandgrand child 2', cmd('echo Grandgrand child 2 action', keep_cmd_window=True)),
                   ),
              node('Grand child 2', cmd('echo Grand child 2 action', keep_cmd_window=True))
              ),
         node('Child 2', cmd('echo Child 2 action', keep_cmd_window=True)),
         )

# Register items
single_action_item.register()
nested_set.register()

# Remove items
single_action_item.remove()
nested_set.remove()
