Porter: Simple File Operations in Python

Project Description

Porter

Porter provides simple file operations.

License

MIT.

Installation

Using pip:

pip install porter

File management

Import porter:

import porter

Create a folder:

porter.mkdir('/foo/bar')
# The new directory 'bar' will be created.

Rename a file/directory:

porter.rename('/foo/bar.txt', 'file.txt')
>>> '/foo/file.txt'

porter.rename('/foo/bar', 'folder')
>>> '/foo/folder'

Remove a file/directory:

porter.remove('/foo/bar')

Copy a file/directory:

# Two ways same result
porter.copy('/foo/bar.txt', '/foo1/bar.txt')
porter.copy_to('/foo/bar.txt', '/foo1')

Move a file/directory:

# Two ways same result
porter.move('/foo/bar', '/foo1/bar')
>>> '/foo1/bar'

porter.move_to('/foo/bar', '/foo1')
>>> '/foo1/bar'

Ignore and force:

porter.mkdir('/foo/bar', ignore=True)
# If '/foo/bar' exists, porter will not create the folder and no error will occur.
# Ignore option can ONLY ignore the error of the existing destination file/directory.

porter.move('/foo/bar', '/foo1/bar', force=True)
# If '/foo1/bar' exists, porter will move the directory anyway.

Ignore and force are both available in ‘mkdir’, ‘copy’, ‘copy_to’, ‘move’, ‘move_to’ functions.

Archive:

porter.archive('/foo/bar')
>>> '/foo/bar.tar'

porter.archive('/foo/bar', 'archive', 'zip')
>>> '/foo/archive.zip'

porter.archive_to('/foo/bar', '/foo/bar1', 'archive')
>>> '/foo/bar1/archive.tar'

All supported archive types: ‘gztar’, ‘bztar’, ‘tar’, ‘zip’

class TargetFile:

bar = porter.TargetFile('/foo/bar.txt')

bar.src
>>> '/foo/bar.txt'

bar.name
>>> 'bar'

bar.ext
>>> 'txt'

bar.move_to('foo1')

bar.src
>>> '/foo1/bar.txt'

bar.remove()
# Then it will be removed.

class TargetDirectory:

"""
The structure of the directory:
- foo
  - bar
    - dir1
      - f1.txt
    - dir2
      - f2.txt
- foo1
"""

bar = porter.TargetDirectory('/foo/bar')

bar.src
>>> '/foo/bar'

bar.list()
>>> {'dir1': {'f1.txt': None}, 'dir2': {'f2.txt': None}}

bar.files()
>>> ['f1.txt', 'f2.txt']

bar.directories()
>>> ['dir1', 'dir2']

bar.move_to('foo1')

bar.src
>>> '/foo1/bar'

bar.empty()
# All of the files in it will be removed

bar.remove()
# Then it will be removed.
