Hey! Directory Localizer

Project description

Directory Localizer helps you localize directories.


Periodically, you’ll want to know where a Python source file is actually located on disk. You might want this for all sorts of reasons, and it’s always a bit messy when you do want to know.

DirectoryLocalizer solves two problems:

  1. it lets you know where you are on disk, assuming you’re not anywhere crazy, like in a zip import, and
  2. it lets you pass that location to other code that might want to know where you are.

Usage is extremely simple:

  1. Make a DirectoryLocalizer object, dl (or whatever).
  2. Call dl.set() from the file you want to locate on disk.
  3. Any code that can access dl can now call:
    • dl.dir(): for the directory of the file where dl.set() was called,
    • dl.path(fn): for the filename of a file in the directory where dl.set() was called,
    • dl.file(fn): for a file object of the file in dl.path(fn), and
    • to get a read of the file in d.file(fn).
