Directory Watcher PDF Print E-mail

You can use this script, if you want to watch for activity on a directory. It shows you every write and delete of a file in a specified directory.

import os, time
path_to_watch = "c:\temp"
before = dict ([(f, None) for f in os.listdir (path_to_watch)]) 
while 1: 
  time.sleep (10) 
  after = dict ([(f, None) for f in os.listdir (path_to_watch)]) 
  added = [f for f in after if not f in before] 
  removed = [f for f in before if not f in after] 
  if added: print "Added: ", ", .join (added) 
  if removed: print "Removed: ", ", ".join (removed) 
  before = after

My prefered web framework

My prefered web framework for developing web applications is Django. Django calls itself The web framework for perfectionists with deadlines. It is a really fast, scalable and (thanks Python) the sexiest web framework of the world.
