Returns

The created DirectoryPage.

Raises

BlockedPageOverwriteError – If an existing page would be overwritten by the operation.

>>> from almanac import PageNavigator
>>> p = PageNavigator()
>>> p.add_directory_page('/a_page')
<DirectoryPage [/a_page]>
>>> print(p)
/
/a_page
>>> p.add_directory_page('/a_page/and/some/others')
<DirectoryPage [/a_page/and/some/others]>
>>> print(p)
/
/a_page
/a_page/and
/a_page/and/some
/a_page/and/some/others
back()None[source]

Move backward in the page history.

change_directory(destination: Union[str, almanac.pages.page_path.PagePath])None[source]

Change the current directory of this navigator.

Parameters

destination – The page to change to, which will be exploded into an absolute path.

Raises
  • NoSuchPageError – If the specified destination is invalid or does not exist.

  • OutOfBoundsPageError – If the specified destination attempts to go above the root directory.

The exploded absolute path. This value is not guaranteed to exist within this PageNavigator.

Raises

OutOfBoundsPageError – If invalid parent directors are referenced via the .. operator.

forward()None[source]

Move forward in the page history.

match(pattern: str) → Iterable[almanac.pages.abstract_page.AbstractPage][source]

Match stored pages against fnmatch patterns.

property root_page

The root page within this navigator.

set_page(key: Union[str, almanac.pages.page_path.PagePath], value: almanac.pages.abstract_page.AbstractPage, allow_overwrite: bool = True)None[source]
class PagePath(path: Union[str, almanac.pages.page_path.PagePath])[source]

Bases: object

/a/b/c/d
property path

The string path wrapped in this instance.

property segments
