tempdirs -- Safely create temporary directories

Project description

Description

tempdirs is a library which allows users to safely and cleanly create any number of temporary directories. Temporary directories are automatically deleted. It was created as a testing utility.

Installation

Install using pip:

pip install pyusps

or easy_install:

easy_install pyusps

Examples

You can tempdirs.makedirs as a decorator passing in the number of temporary directories needed:

import os

import tempdirs

@tempdirs.makedirs(2)
def test_foo(srcdir, dstdir):
    srcfile = os.path.join(srcdir,'foo')
    dstfile = os.path.join(dstdir,'bar')
    with open(srcfile, 'w') as fp:
        fp.write('src content\n')
    with open(dstfile, 'w') as fp:
        fp.write('dst content\n')

You can also use tempdirs.makedirs as a Context Manager:

import os

import tempdirs

with tempdirs.makedirs(2) as (srcdir, dstdir):
    srcfile = os.path.join(srcdir,'foo')
    dstfile = os.path.join(dstdir,'bar')
    with open(srcfile, 'w') as fp:
        fp.write('src content\n')
    with open(dstfile, 'w') as fp:
        fp.write('dst content\n')
