Efficiently find files and directories

Project description

This package provides similar functionality to the Unix find command, but in a pythonic fashion. A FsFinder object encapsulates a number of rules that define how to traverse a directory structure and try to match the paths along the way. The FsFinder.walk method takes one or more root paths to start from and generates a MatchResult object for any path it encounters that match its rules.

The package is built upon the scandir package which provides effiecient directroy listing and the ability to avoid unneeded ‘stat’ calls on the paths being generated.

Running Tests

You can run the tests with:

$ python test

Or if you already have the nose package installed you can use the nosetests command in the top level directory:

You can install the .zip or .tar.gz package with the easy_install or pip commands.

Or you can uncompress the package and in the top level directory run:
