Local locations

Project description

Local locations for Python

It's mi vida loca.

Loca is a highly opinionated redesign of appdirs. It relies on pathlib, dataclasses and @property to replace most of the parameters in the original library to create a more intuitive API.


from loca import Loca

loca = Loca()
assert loca == ==
assert loca.state() == loca.user.state()
assert loca.config == loca.user.config
assert loca.cache() == loca.cache.user()

shared = loca.shared
assert shared == ==
foobar_shared_config = shared.config() / 'foobar'


Patches must pass the checks run by tox and should be sent to ~cnx/ using git send-email, with the following configurations:

git config '~cnx/'
git config format.subjectPrefix 'PATCH python-loca'
