I recently began working on a Mac. I was able to configure an
application launcher for IDLE. However, when I open a .py file with
this launcher, it sets the current working directory to my Documents
folder. Under Windows and Linux, the working directory would be the
directory containing the .py file and I would like the Mac to do the
I found the idlemain.py file inside the IDLE launcher and see where it
is setting the current working directory, but knowing next to nothing
about how the Mac actually launches programs, I don't know how to get
the folder of the .py file. I did look at sys.argv being passed to
idlemain.py, but it doesn't include the filename of the .py file.
Is it possible to create an IDLE launcher that will set the working
directory to the folder containing the .py file that I opened?
