Project Description

Using Linux? Tired of receiving emails with links to files of the form X:\some%20path\on\remote%20share\spreadsheet.xls? Then we can help!

pathfix.py takes an unusable path as input and prints a useful one as output. That’s it.

It can handle Windows drive prefixes (if configured), and will also sort out file:// and smb:// prefixes.

Should work with Python 2.4 - 3.3 and pypy (probably more, but that’s as far as it’s been tested).

Installation

Install system-wide with sudo pip install pathfix.py or sudo easy_install pathfix.py. This will put an executable named pathfix.py into your $PATH.

Configuration

You need to create a config.ini file that contains the root of your network mounts and any drive mappings (see config.example.ini or the example below to get started).

By default, pathfix.py will check for $HOME/.config/pathfix/config.ini, so it’s best to keep your config there. If you are installing from source, you can also just keep a config.ini in the source tree next to pathfix.py.

We assume all your network shares are mounted under a common root, with the form:

/<network mount root>/<host name>/<share name>

If you installed from source, you may find it helpful to symlink pathfix.py to /usr/local/bin or somewhere else on your PATH, or you can just python setup.py install and you’ll get the pathfix.py executable on your path.

Usage

For example, if you have this in your config.ini:

[main]
network_root = /media/network

[drive_maps]
x = host1:share1
y = host2:share2

Then you can do, for example:

% pathfix.py "X:\some%20path\on\remote%20share\spreadsheet.xls"
/media/network/host1/share1/some path/on/remote share/spreadsheet.xls

Which you can use in subshells to fix arguments to other applications, for example:

% libreoffice "$(pathfix.py "X:\some%20path\on\remote%20share\spreadsheet.xls")"

Development

Pull requests are welcome, but please do include test cases that cover any updates.

There are no requirements unless you’re using Python 2.4-2.6, or 3.0-3.1, in which case (if you’re installing from source) you need to install argparse:

pip install -r requirements.txt

To make sure it all still works, run the tests:

python setup.py test
