``scandir()`` is a directory iteration function like ``os.listdir()``,
except that instead of returning a list of bare filenames, it yields
``DirEntry`` objects that include file type and stat information along
with the name. Using ``scandir()`` increases the speed of ``os.walk()``
by 2-20 times (depending on the platform and file system) by avoiding
unnecessary calls to ``os.stat()`` in most cases.
``scandir`` has been included in the Python 3.5 standard library as
``os.scandir()``, and the related performance improvements to
``os.walk()`` have also been included. So if you're lucky enough to be
using Python 3.5 (release date September 13, 2015) you get the benefit
immediately, otherwise just
`download this module from PyPI <>`_,
install it with ``pip install scandir``, and then do something like
this in your code::
from os import scandir, walk
except ImportError:
from scandir import scandir, walk
`PEP 471 <>`_, which is the
PEP that proposes including ``scandir`` in the Python standard library,
was `accepted <>`_
in July 2014 by Victor Stinner, the BDFL-delegate for the PEP.
This ``scandir`` module is intended to work on Python 2.6+ and Python
3.2+ (and it has been tested on those versions).

2019-03-11 - Tomá? Chvátal <>
- Update to 1.10.0:
* remove support for pyton 2.6 and <3.3
2019-03-02 - John Vandenberg <>
- Allow building on Python 3.5+, as it is useful for testing and it
should exist for when packages list it as a runtime dependency, and
it will add backports of enhancements to scandir since Python 3.5.
2018-11-01 - Tomá? Chvátal <>
- Update to 1.9.0:
* Mark C extension as optional for things like Jython. See #105.
* Fix build on Python 2.7 (#107). Fix dirent struct alignment on OpenBSD (#109).
- Do not build on python 3.5+ as it is part of the base
2018-04-23 -
- specfile:
* update copyright year
- update to version 1.7:
* Expose scandir.DirEntry (#93).
2017-11-03 -
- update to version 1.6:
* Fixed #11: inode should be unsigned
* Fixed unicode handling on PyPy due to Py_FileSystemDefaultEncoding
always being NULL there
* Improve tests on PyPy and Windows
* Add Travis and Appveyor CI testing
