Writing to csv file
applepython last edited by
First time with Pythonista here and I cannot for the life of me figure out how I can point my script to a csv file I have saved on my iPhone
I tried both Pythonista/External Files / test.csv
and also Pythonista/Script Library/ This iPhone / test.csv
An excerpt of my code below:
row = ['a', 'b', 'c']
with open(''*WHAT IS EASIEST FILE PATH TO PUT HERE WRITE TO A LOCAL CSV.csv 'a') as csvFile:
writer = csv.writer(csvFile)
for i in b:
row = ['a', i, 'c']
My goal is to use Siri shortcut to run Pythonista in which it will modify a csv file on my iPhone.

With pandas, it should be much easier. But… Maybe in 9102, pythonista will support pandas.

@applepython did you check the doc in Pythonista? here

@applepython, just the file name (”myfile.csv”) will create the file in the directory where your script is.
Or a relative path like ”../../some/other/dir/myfile.csv” works.
Or, if you have to be absolute, a path starting with os.path.expanduser('~') will let you start from your Pythonista root dir.
