Find all files in directory with extension .txt in Python

How can I find all files in directory with the extension

.txt
in python?

Answer

You can use glob:

import glob, os
os.chdir("/mydir")
for file in glob.glob("*.txt"):
    print(file)

or simply os.listdir:

import os
for file in os.listdir("/mydir"):
    if file.endswith(".txt"):
        print(file)

or if you want to traverse directory, use os.walk:

import os
for root, dirs, files in os.walk("/mydir"):
    for file in files:
        if file.endswith(".txt"):
             print(os.path.join(root, file))
