core.paths module

Path management.


Clears the path cache.

core.paths.get(name, *paths)[source]

Returns the path registered under <name>, or an empty string if <name> is not known.

core.paths.register(name, *path_elms, **kwargs)[source]

Registers a path constructed by <path_elms> under <name>. If multiple path elements are given, the last element will undergo case correction (see _identify_folder_name).

  • name – a registered name corresponding to some path segment

  • path_elems – path elements, which will be joined to the root path

  • allow_create – If True, the registered path will be created if it does not already exist. Defaults to True.
