Python Feedback on a program I made.

Hi CF,

I would like to ask for feedback on a project of mine I made in Python & PHP. It is a program that allows you to wirelessly share files with other devices on your network. Any device that can access the webpage for the server can upload and downloads files.

Github: https://github.com/didlly/File-Sharer

NOTE: Currently the program only supports Windows.

Ok, so I'm not sure if this is supposed to happen, but when I open the main.exe a terminal opens. This is what it shows:
Code:
[15-12-2021-07:49:31] - Definied window instance within variable 'window'.

[15-12-2021-07:49:31] - Defined variable 'window_width' and set it's value to 150.

[15-12-2021-07:49:31] - Defined variable 'window_height' and set it's value to 150.

[15-12-2021-07:49:31] - Defined variables 'screen_width' and 'screen_height' and set their values to 1920 and 1080 respectively.

[15-12-2021-07:49:31] - Defined variables 'x_cordinate' and 'y_cordinate' and set their values to 885 and 465 respectively.

[15-12-2021-07:49:31] - Defined window size and set its value to '150x150+885+465'.

[15-12-2021-07:49:31] - Made the window non-resizeable.

[15-12-2021-07:49:31] - Set the window's title to 'File Sharer'.

[15-12-2021-07:49:31] - Made a button to start the server and assigned it the name 'start_button'.

[15-12-2021-07:49:31] - Specified coords for 'start_button' to be placed.

[15-12-2021-07:49:57] - Worked out the command to be written to the bat file (cd C:\Users\*****\Downloads\File-Sharer-main\src\php && php -S 192.168.18.164:80 -t C:\Users\*****\Downloads\File-Sharer-main\src\server -c C:\Users\*****\Downloads\File-Sharer-main\src\server\php.ini) and saved it to the variable cmd.

[15-12-2021-07:49:57] - Opened C:\Users\*****\Downloads\File-Sharer-main\src/run.bat in write mode.

[15-12-2021-07:49:57] - Wrote cd C:\Users\*****\Downloads\File-Sharer-main\src\php && php -S 192.168.18.164:80 -t C:\Users\*****\Downloads\File-Sharer-main\src\server -c C:\Users\*****\Downloads\File-Sharer-main\src\server\php.ini to the bat file.

[15-12-2021-07:50:01] - Opened the server and assigned it the name 'bat'.

[15-12-2021-07:50:01] - Globalised PID of server (11244)

[15-12-2021-07:50:19] - Opened the server page in the default web browser.

[15-12-2021-07:50:19] - Made a button to stop the server and assigned it the name 'end_button'.

[15-12-2021-07:50:19] - Specified coords for 'end_button' to be placed.

After the terminal opened a mini window opened with a button saying start server. When I click it, a web page opens in a browser (192.168.18.164) and it's just blank. I can't remember if it was before or after the web page opened, but another terminal opened showing this:
Code:
C:\Users\*****\Downloads\File-Sharer-main\src>cd C:\Users\*****\Downloads\File-Sharer-main\src\php   && php -S 192.168.18.164:80 -t C:\Users\*****\Downloads\File-Sharer-main\src\server -c C:\Users\*****\Downloads\File-Sharer-main\src\server\php.ini

I've updated the code with a fix. When I update the code, I make sure the /uploads folder is empty of all files from testing the server. However, since it is empty Github doesn't bother adding the folder to the repository. At line 128, where the error occurred, PHP tries to search for all files in the folder. However, since there is no folder it doesn't return an array as expected, which results in an error.

Yeah, as I said in a previous message I've updated the code with a fix. There is a new file called PLACEHODER in 'src/uploads/' that gets deleted when you run the script. Redownload the files and it should now work.

In the future you can also do things like this:
Code:
import os
path = "folder/path/here"
folderexists = os.path.isdir(path)
if not folderexists:
    os.mkdir(path)
This checks if the folder exists, and if not will create the folder automatically.

You could also add a file:
Code:
f = open(path + "/filename.txt", "a")
f.write("This is my readme file.")
f.close()
