String with path operations.

Project description

PyPI version. Supported Python versions. Project license. Azure Pipelines build status. Code formatted by Black.

pathstring is a very small module that provides only one class (pathstring.Path) which is a string with support for path operations. Technically, it subclasses str and delegates path related operations to pathlib.Path.

Differences from pathlib paths are:

  • Paths are strings, no need to cast them to strings.
  • No distinction between “pure” and “concrete” paths.
  • No explicit distinction between Posix and Windows paths, but paths are always “native” to their platform.
  • Adds a Path.rmtree() method which invokes shutil.rmtree() on the path. Actually, since paths are strings, shutil.rmtree(path) will also work.
  • Adds a strict parameter to the Path.relative_to() method which, when set to False, will also navigate “up” in the hierarchy.
  • No support for case-insensitive comparisons on Windows.
  • No Path.replace() method since it would cause confusion with str.replace().

Features are tested extensively against pathlib documentation to guarantee compatibility.
