Easily read and write to different storage platforms in Python.

Project description

Working with multiple storage platforms (i.e., local filesystem, S3, Google Cloud, etc.) can be quite a hassle. This package aims to make it transparent to the user and the developer the underlying storage system by wrapping the different protocols in a common interface.

Documentation available at



with uri_open('', mode='r') as f:
    contents =

Example with argument parser:

parser = ArgumentParser(description='Read text file from URI.')
parser.add_argument('-i', '--input', type=URIFileType('r'), metavar='<input>', help='Input file URI.')
A = parser.parse_args()

contents =

Or, writing to a file with argument parser is as easy as:

parser = ArgumentParser(description='Write text file to URI.')
parser.add_argument('-o', '--output', type=URIFileType('w'), metavar='<output>', help='Output file URI.')
A = parser.parse_args()

A.output.write('Hello world!\n')

And you can run python --output s3://example-bucket/output.txt.
