The goal of this series of videos is to demonstrate how to deal with files, paths and folders from python programmatically. We'll mainly discuss the python pathlib module.
Let's compare the two styles.
import os import json path_str = os.path.join("settings", "config.json") with open(path_str) as f: d = json.loads(f.read())
import json import pathlib p = pathlib.Path("settings", "config.json") d = json.loads(p.read_text())
It may certainly be a matter of preference, but the fact that one
does not need the context manager
with open() is appreciated.
