I am trying to get the code to list all the directories in a folder, change directory into that folder and get the name of the current folder. The code I have so far is below and isn’t working at the minute. I seem to be getting the parent folder name.
import os for directories in os.listdir(os.getcwd()): dir = os.path.join('/home/user/workspace', directories) os.chdir(dir) current = os.path.dirname(dir) new = str(current).split("-") print new
I also have other files in the folder but I do not want to list them. I have tried the below code but I haven’t got it working yet either.
for directories in os.path.isdir(os.listdir(os.getcwd())):
Can anyone see where I am going wrong?
Got it working but it seems a bit round about.
import os os.chdir('/home/user/workspace') all_subdirs = [d for d in os.listdir('.') if os.path.isdir(d)] for dirs in all_subdirs: dir = os.path.join('/home/user/workspace', dirs) os.chdir(dir) current = os.getcwd() new = str(current).split("/") print new
This will print all the subdirectories of the current directory:
print [name for name in os.listdir(".") if os.path.isdir(name)]
I’m not sure what you’re doing with
split("-"), but perhaps this code will help you find a solution?
If you want the full pathnames of the directories, use
print [os.path.abspath(name) for name in os.listdir(".") if os.path.isdir(name)]
Note that these pieces of code will only get the immediate subdirectories. If you want sub-sub-directories and so on, you should use
walk as others have suggested.
