What would you like to do?
Python -- traverse a folder
import os
for dirname, dirnames, filenames in os.walk('.'):
# print path to all subdirectories first.
for subdirname in dirnames:
print(os.path.join(dirname, subdirname))
# print path to all filenames.
for filename in filenames:
print(os.path.join(dirname, filename))
# Advanced usage:
# editing the 'dirnames' list will stop os.walk() from recursing into there.
if '.git' in dirnames:
# don't go into any .git directories.
