file count Tales

Count Files v1.4 – new features and finally available on PyPI!

The latest release of this file counting command-line utility has just been released. It is a platform independent (pure Python) package that makes it easy to count files by extension. This version has some useful new features. It was tested in a wide range on environments and, for the first time, it is now available on PyPI, which means you can just pip install it as any other Python package.

New project: counting files with Python

While working on this website, I had the curiosity to find out how many HTML and image files Pelican was generating behind the scenes. I had no utility at hand to count files recursively through folders and subfolders, so I decided to create my own using Python.
