Project description

Platform_utils is a library which provides several cross-platform utilities, including:

  • path manipulation - allows you to do several things with paths including getting the path to store application data, creating the application data directory, checking whether the app is frozen, etc.

  • clipboard - allows getting/setting clipboard text.

  • idle - allows getting the user idle time on Windows.

  • process - allows killing processes on Windows and Unix.

  • shell_integration - adds something to the context menu on Windows.
