Convenience methods for file/process operations
runez is a small convenience library for common operations I found myself rewriting multiple times.
It comes in handy for programs that need to run other programs, or copy/move files etc.
The name was initially meant as “run ez” (“run easy”), the fact that it sounds like “runes” gives it a bit of a mystery/magic side that’s also relatively appropriate (it does indeed concentrate a bit of invocation magic, as you can save quite a few lines of repetitive code by using it)
Support for dryrun mode (show what would be done, but don’t do it)
Perform most typical logging setups in one call to runez.log.setup()
Log operations systematically (at debug level mostly), examples:
Running: foo ... Copy foo -> bar Would move foo -> bar (for dryrun)
CaptureOutput context manager -> grab output/logging from any code section
Take care of most edge cases, with nice errors
Functions can be called without checking for return code etc (abort by default, with nice error)
They can also be called with fatal=False, in which case the return value will indicate whether call succeeded or not
100% test coverage
Run a program:
import runez # Aborts if "foo" doesn't exist output = runez.run("ls", "foo") # Output can also be ignored runez.run("ls", "foo") # Don't capture output, just run the command and let output "pass through" runez.run("ls", "foo", stdout=None, stderr=None) # Don't abort, return False on failure (or actual output when successful) output = runez.run("ls", "foo", fatal=False)
import runez runez.touch("foo") runez.copy("foo", "bar") runez.move("foo", "baz") runez.delete("foo") runez.write("foo", "bar\nbaz\n") first = runez.first_line("foo") lines = runez.get_lines("foo") full_path = runez.resolved_path("foo/bar") folder = runez.parent_folder(full_path) runez.ensure_folder(folder) with runez.Anchored(folder): assert runez.short(full_path) == "bar"
As usual, available on pypi: pip install runez
