My first python script

My first python script! Woohoo to me! I’m working with a file and using a for-loop. It is crazy.

The python script

I needed a list of all my movies in a txt file and I needed an excuse to do some python. Hold on to you hats, here it comes:

import os
import glob

path = 'N:\Film\Film'

with open("movies.txt", "a") as myfile:
    for infile in glob.glob(os.path.join(path, '*.*')):
        if ".srt" not in infile:
            myfile.write(infile + "\n")

As you can see it is pretty straight forward.

  1. Open a file with the append parameter
  2. Iterate over the files and foldes in the path. You have the oppotunity to do a whitelistning
  3. I’ve chosen a blacklistning. I do not want my .srt files poluting the end result.
  4. If everything adds up, add it to the file as a new line That was pretty easy and short to. Soon I will unleash the power of python other projects. Happy python’ing
