Hello, I am fairly new to python and pythonista.
I have a small problem, when writing a fhand=open() function for .txt file my app gives a traceback error of no such fil exists.
How do i read a txt file in python thats on my Files app locally on my ipad?
Thanks in advance

@Ayzar247 you have to, once, give Pythonista access to your "on my iPad" folder in Files.
This is done via the open external, then folder, then select "on my iPad".
The choose the location
Then you will see this
And in your script, you will have access to a file by a path like
path = '/private/var/mobile/Containers/Shared/AppGroup/EF3F9065-AD98-4DE3-B5DB-21170E88B77F/File Provider Storage/Myfile.txt'
Where the EF3F9065-AD98-4DE3-B5DB-21170E88B77F part will be different for your device.
I still have to remember how to find this value...
Édit: create this script in this folder and run it
import sys print(sys.argv)
