My utility functions. Will be adding more

Project description


This is a collection of utility functions, which can simple, and are a whole lot useful.

This version of the utility functions includes only those dealing with the files, directories, full paths of those.


Get the expanded path of directory dir_

The home directory of ~ is /home/rv and home directory of zope is /usr/local/zope

>>> full_path('~')
>>> full_path('~zope')

For a non existant user ~test, the result will be current_directory/~test

>>> full_path('~test')

Join the list to form a directory path

This is just a convenience function.

>>> join_path('~', 'test')
>>> join_path('/home/rv', 'test')
>>> join_path('test', 'README.txt')

determine if dir_ is a directory.

>>> is_directory('.')
>>> is_directory('~')
>>> is_directory('/')
>>> is_directory('no/such/directory')

get a list of files(absolute path) in directory dir_

the .directory happens to exist in my computer, but for now
the function works as intended.

>>> get_files_in('/home/')
>>> '/etc/passwd' in get_files_in('/etc/')

get a list of directories(absolute path) in directory dir_

>>> sorted(get_directories_in('/home/'))
['/home/guest', '/home/rv']
>>> '/home/rv/Desktop' in get_directories_in('~')

get the latest file in given directory

>>> get_latest_file_in('~/expertpy/roopeshv.utils', prefix=[])


version 0.0.1

  • added few convenience functions
