I need to get the location of the home directory of the current logged-on user. Currently, I've been using the following on Linux:
However, this does not work on Windows. What is the correct cross-platform way to do this?
You want to use os.path.expanduser. This will ensure it works on all platforms
from os.path import expanduser home = expanduser("~")
If you're on Python 3.5+ you can use pathlib.Path.home():
from pathlib import Path home = str(Path.home())
