A platform independent file lock.
This package contains a single module, which implements a platform independent file locking mechanism for Python.
The lock includes a lock counter and is thread safe. This means, when locking the same lock object twice, it will not block.
import filelock lock = filelock.FileLock("my_lock_file") with lock: pass try: with lock.acquire(timeout = 10): pass except filelock.Timeout: pass
