List Folder Contents

The “List Folder Contents” recipe lets you list all the files contained in a folder into a dataset, along with some information about the file and possibly extracting parts of the path into extra columns.

This recipe is useful to create the input dataset for Computer vision or an image labeling task from the input images folder.

Output columns

You can select the information to retrieve about each file in the folder:

  • path to the file in the folder

  • basename filename without the extension

  • extension of the file

  • last_modified date

  • size of the file in bytes

Folder level mapping

Use this mapping to output extra columns containing the name of specific levels in the folder hierarchy.

Levels start at 1 and negative levels are relative to the end of the folder hierarchy.

For example:

../_images/list_folder_contents_example.png
