Convenient File Handling Library
Py7File wraps and unifies the python stdlib file handling modules with a simple and intuitive high-level api.
Think: os.path, shutil etc. via object based method access.
Use easy_install or pip:
pip install py7file
Source Code: http://github.com/titusz/py7file
Here some hopefully self explaining examples of the Py7File usage:
from py7file import Py7File the_file = Py7File('a_file.txt') # Copy and Move copied_file = the_file.copy('d_file.txt') # copied_file is also a Py7file the_file.move('moved_file.txt') # moves the file and mutates the reference # Backup and Restore the_file.backup() # creates a_file_backup_001.txt the_file.backup() # creates a_file_backup_002.txt the_file.delete() # removes a_file.txt from disk (ups...) the_file.restore() # recovers file from a_file_backup_002.txt # Unzip and Rezip zfile = Py7File('a_file.zip') zfile.unzip() # creates a subfolder a_file with contents of zipfile zfile.rezip() # repackages subfolder a_file to a_file.zip
See test_py7file.py for more examples.

Alpha - Use at own risk…
As a started learning programming with python I found the different modules for handling files very confusing and cumbersome to use. While writing my first scripts I found myself writing os.path.join(…) way to often. I still keep mixing up os and shutil based file operations like copy, move, rename. So I started this little module to make things easier…
