How to Set Your Python Workspace Directory?

Estimated read time 1 min read

You can set your Python workspace directory using the os module in Python. Here’s an example code that demonstrates how to set your workspace directory to a specific path:

import os

# Set workspace directory to /path/to/directory
os.chdir('/path/to/directory')

In this example, we first import the os module. We then use the chdir function to change the current working directory to the specified path /path/to/directory.

Once you’ve set your workspace directory, any file operations or function calls that use relative paths will be relative to the new directory. For example, if you have a file called data.csv in the workspace directory, you can open it using a relative path like this:

import csv

# Open data.csv file in workspace directory
with open('data.csv', 'r') as f:
    reader = csv.reader(f)
    for row in reader:
        print(row)

Note that if you use absolute paths instead of relative paths, the current working directory won’t matter. However, using relative paths can make your code more portable and easier to manage, especially if you need to move your workspace directory to a different location.
