Python project zip extract

Python project zip extract

I have my python project as a zip file. I have uploaded it to lib/python. Not sure how to extract the zip file inside the Dataiku library.

Can we extract via notebook?

How to get the library directory information?

The libraries structure does not permit unzipping files directly there.

You can do it in a notebook with:

!unzip DATADIR/config/projects/PROJECT_KEY/lib/path/to/ 

  • Per-project library folder is in DATA_DIR/config/projects/PROJECT_KEY/lib

  • Global library folder is in DATA_DIR/lib/python

i have uploaded in lmy in /lib, /lib/python in 2 locations. 

tried below combinations still not able to point the exact folder,

!unzip DATADIR/config/projects/TESTEXPLORER/lib/

!unzip DATADIR/config/projects/TESTEXPLORER/lib/python/

!unzip DATADIR/config/projects/TESTEXPLORER/lib/path/python/

!unzip DATADIR/config/projects/TESTEXPLORER/lib/path/to/

getting error : 

unzip:  cannot find or open DATADIR/config/projects/TESTEXPLORER/lib/python/, DATADIR/config/projects/TESTEXPLORER/lib/python/ or DATADIR/config/projects/TESTEXPLORER/lib/python/



can you tell how to explore like a terminal to find the exact path?
