My python script executes an
os.listdir(path) where the path is a queue containing archives that I need to treat one by one.
The problem is that I’m getting the list in an array and then I just do a simple
array.pop(0). It was working fine until I put the project in subversion. Now I get the
.svn folder in my array and of course it makes my application crash.
So here is my question: is there a function that ignores hidden files when executing an
os.listdir() and if not what would be the best way?
Now we will see solution for issue: How to ignore hidden files using os.listdir()?
You can write one yourself:
import os def listdir_nohidden(path): for f in os.listdir(path): if not f.startswith('.'): yield f
Or you can use a glob:
import glob import os def listdir_nohidden(path): return glob.glob(os.path.join(path, '*'))
Either of these will ignore all filenames beginning with
