Consider the following Python code:

import os

print os.getcwd()

I use os.getcwd() to get the script file's directory location. When I run the script from the command line it gives me the correct path whereas when I run it from a script run by code in a Django view it prints /.

How can I get the path to the script from within a script run by a Django view?

For finding script's directory with Python you need to call os.path.realpath on __file__, so that when __file__ is a filename without the path you still get the dir path below is the code example how we perform this:-

import os

print(os.path.dirname(os.path.realpath(__file__)))
