How can I delete the contents of a local folder in Python?
The current project is for Windows, but I would like to see *nix also.
import os, shutil folder = '/path/to/folder' for filename in os.listdir(folder): file_path = os.path.join(folder, filename) try: if os.path.isfile(file_path) or os.path.islink(file_path): os.unlink(file_path) elif os.path.isdir(file_path): shutil.rmtree(file_path) except Exception as e: print('Failed to delete %s. Reason: %s' % (file_path, e))
