pyvert is a tool to convert a filesystem directory structure to and from YAML

Project description

Pyvert is a tool to convert a filesystem directory structure to and from YAML. Comes in useful for development when a directory of test files and folders is desired.


For converting a directory to a dict, use convert_dir:

>>> from pyvert import convert_dir
>>> foo = convert_dir.to_dict("/path/to/directory")
>>> type(foo)
<type 'dict'>


From command line, generate a YAML file of a given directory:

$ dir2yaml /path/to/foobar
Dictionary written to foobar.yaml

Also works in reverse:

$ yaml2dir foobar.yaml
Directory created at /path/to/foobar


To install Pyvert, simply:

$ pip install pyvert
