Variables defined by the XDG Base Directory Specification

Project Description

xdg is a tiny Python module which provides the variables defined by the XDG Base Directory Specification, to save you from duplicating the same snippet of logic in every Python utility you write that deals with user cache, configuration, or data files. It has no external dependencies and supports Python 2 and 3.

Installation

To install the latest release from PyPI, use pip:

pip install xdg

Alternatively, since xdg is only a single file you may prefer to just copy xdg.py from the source distribution into your project.

Usage

from xdg import (XDG_CACHE_HOME, XDG_CONFIG_DIRS, XDG_CONFIG_HOME,
                 XDG_DATA_DIRS, XDG_DATA_HOME, XDG_RUNTIME_DIR)

XDG_CACHE_HOME, XDG_CONFIG_HOME, and XDG_DATA_HOME are strings containing the value of the environment variable of the same name, or the default defined in the specification if the environment variable is unset or empty.

XDG_CONFIG_DIRS and XDG_DATA_DIRS are lists of strings containing the value of the environment variable of the same name split on colons, or the default defined in the specification if the environment variable is unset or empty.

XDG_RUNTIME_DIR is a string containing the value of the environment variable of the same name, or None if the environment variable is unset.
