The aim of this library is to provide an
easy_install-able update of Jason
Orendorff’s path library, free from
deprecation warnings and compatible with Python 2.3+.
Another major goal of this library is to be path module-agnostic. Using a different path module is quite simple:
>>> from pathobject import Path >>> import ntpath >>> import posixpath >>> POSIXPath = Path.for_path_module(posixpath, name='POSIXPath') >>> POSIXPath('/a/b/c').splitall() [POSIXPath(u'/'), u'a', u'b', u'c'] >>> NTPath = Path.for_path_module(ntpath, name='NTPath') >>> NTPath(u'C:\\Documents and Settings\\Zack').splitdrive() (NTPath(u'C:'), u'\\Documents and Settings\\Zack')
The benefit of this is that you can manipulate Windows paths from a UNIX system,
and vice versa—something simple reliance on
os.path doesn’t allow.
