I'm not taking the time to really study it, but at first
glance, the code looks like it's probably much more
complicated than it needs to be.

The tail end of that is the string representation of
a list containing one string, not of that string. I
suspect you needed to use ''.join() somewhere.  Or,
you could, in principle have indexed the list, since
you only want one member of it, e.g.:

>>> ['index.html'][0]
'index.html'
