Python implementation of GNU Findutils

Project description

findtools

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'
