Cross-platform utilities for accomplishing some tasks that the stdlib isn't equipped to provide

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.
  • blackhole - disables stdout/stderr when using py2exe.


Check whether the app is frozen:

>>> platform_utils.paths.is_frozen()
