  • create_filepath (either a file or a dir)
  • delete_file (only works on files, not dirs)
  • clear_file
  • get_contents_of_file (only works with text)
  • append_text_to_file
  • write_text_to_file
  • is_binary
  • is_empty
  • is_dir
  • is_file is_decryptable is_encryptable
  • filepath_exists


TextFile(filepath, txt="This is added to the file.")

The TextFile does not add functionality but allows the user to create text files with content at initialization. The txt is appended to the file, so if the file already exists, the text is appended.


EncryptionFile(filepath, rsa_filepath)


  • encrypt
  • decrypt
  • write_bytes_to_file
  • get_bytes_from_file




  • gen_key
  • gen_pem_file
  • get_key
