PyFilesystem is a Python module that provides a common interface to any filesystem.
Think of PyFilesystem
FS objects as the next logical step to Python’s
file class. Just as file-like objects abstract a single file, FS objects abstract the whole filesystem by providing a common interface to operations such as reading directories, getting file information, opening/copying/deleting files etc.
Even if you only want to work with the local filesystem, PyFilesystem simplifies a number of common operations and reduces the chance of error.
PyFilesystem was initially created by Will McGugan and is now a joint effort from the following contributors:
- Will McGugan (http://www.willmcgugan.com)
- Ryan Kelly (http://www.rfk.id.au)
- Andrew Scheller (http://www.andrewscheller.co.uk/)
- Ben Timby (http://ben.timby.com/)
And many others who have contributed bug reports and patches.
