Working with the Computer File System

Another data-structure very commonly used in the world of coding are TREE's, for example:

  1. The computer file system is a Tree.
  2. The DOM (Document Object Model) is a Tree.

In this case, we will use the Tree Hierarchy concept to scan and browse through a group of files in a computer.

🌱 How to start this project

Do not clone this repository.

  1. The first step to start coding is cloning the python boilerplate on your local computer or opening it using gitpod.

a) If using Gitpod (recommended) you can clone the boilerplate by clicking here.

b) If working locally type the following command from your command line:

https://github.com/4GeeksAcademy/flask-rest-hello
  1. Install the dependency packages by typing:
$ pipenv install --python 3
  1. Get inside your virtual environment by typing:
$ pipenv shell
  1. You can run the project by typing:
$ python src/app.py
  1. You can also run the tests for the project:
$ python src/test.py

πŸ’‘ Important: Remember to create a new repository, update the remote (git remote set-url origin <your new url>), and upload the code to your new repository using add, commit and push.

πŸ“ Instructions

Give the set of files under the data-files folder, please write a program that creates a JSON file called report.json that outputs the following report:

{ "levels": 3, "total_files_found": 5, "files_found": ["file_one.csv", "file_two.json"], "file_extentions_found": ["csv", "json"], "total_folders_found": 3, "folders_found": ["folder_one","folder_tow"], "links_found": 12, "broken_links_found": 4, }

Report explanation:

PropertyDescription
levelsNumber of connections between the top node and the lowest node
total_files_foundhow many files were found, folders don't count
files_foundthe name of each of the files found, without folders
file_extentions_founda non-repeated list of the file extensions found inside the tree
total_folders_foundtotal amount of folders found, files don't count
Links foundHow many URL's were found starting with http or https
broken_links_foundHow many of the links were broken (you have to do a GET request and check for 404)

πŸ’‘ Hint

  1. Start by looking python get files in folder on google.
  2. This query also helps: python file is directory to check if a file is a directory or not.
  3. To google how to find links inside the file content: python find all links in string
  4. Get extension from file name: python get file extension
