Script Collection

This is an example collection of Python Scripts for Windows. Most of them show, how to automate Windows Applications with COM. For the most scripts you need a Python distribution and the Pywin32 module, which is included in ActivePython.

Determine top level script name and directory in Python PDF Print E-mail

This script provides the name and directory of the top level Python script.

Why is this useful?

Sometimes you need information stored in the main script's directory (configuration data, graphics, parameters, etc.)

Why this approach?

The simpler ways of doing this all fail in one or the other situation:
  • Variable "__file__" contains the source name but it is not available when being invoked by execfile or when compiled.
  • Variable "sys.argv[0]" does not work when we are being invoked by execfile.
  • Variable "sys.executable" only works in the compiled case. It does provide directory information and the executable's name, but not the name of the Python source that was used to create it.

ScriptInfo tries to always provide the correct information. It has been tested with Python 2.7.9 / Win7 and py2exe, cx_freeze, PyInstaller, IDLE, IPython (sh) / (Qt), python interpreter.

Sample usage:
import scriptinfo as si
script_name = si.scriptinfo["name"]      # will contain <toplevel>.py / <toplevel>.exe
script_dir  = si.scriptinfo["dir"]       # will contain directory where <toplevel>.py / <toplevel>.exe sits
script_src  = si.scriptinfo["source"]    # will contain <toplevel>.py
"source" and "name" are identical when running interpreted.
"source" contains the Python name of the script that was compiled yielding the executable - but only in cases py2exe and cx_freeze. "source" has no meaningful information in PyInstaller compilations.

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.
