Python implementation of GNU Findutils
Findtools is a pythonic implementation of file search routines inspired by GNU Findutils.
from findtools.find_files import (find_files, Match) # Recursively find all *.sh files in **/usr/bin** sh_files_pattern = Match(filetype='f', name='*.sh') found_files = find_files(path='/usr/bin', match=sh_files_pattern) for found_file in found_files: print(found_file)
The above is equivalent to
find /usr/bin -type f -name '*.sh'
You can install this library by via
pip install findtools
Alternatively you can clone this git repository. Then if you are using pyenv or miniconda as your local development setup
git clone https://github.com/ewiger/findtools.git findtools && cd findtools pip install -e .
This will symlink you local copy and help you testign the package locally.
You can run tests yourself with built-in
cd tests && python test_findtools.py
or with pytest:
cd tests && pytest
Package has been tested on python3.8+ and python2.7+.
Upgrade to latest with
pip install findtools==1.1.0
