Just Read, Just Write, Just Right

Project description

Just Read, Just Write, Just Right

  • Free software: MIT license

JustFile is a Python library that provides a function to either read, write, or append.

It’s pretty straight-foward. No creating a file handle. no with-syntax. Just reading from a path.


>>> from import read
>>> nginx_content = read('/etc/nginx/nginx.conf')
>>> nginx_content
[[ Whatever's in /etc/nginx/nginx.conf ]]

>>> # But what if it doesn't exist?

>>> not_found = read('/file/not/found.txt')
>>> not_found


pip install justfile

You can also install the in-development version with:

pip install



To run the all tests run:

python3 -m nose

Note, to combine the coverage data from all the tox environments run:


set PYTEST_ADDOPTS=--cov-append


PYTEST_ADDOPTS=--cov-append tox
