I'm looking for the most Pythonic and reliable way to set the path of the working directory.

  1. Using __file__:

Code:
import os

script_dir = os.path.dirname(os.path.abspath(__file__))
  1. Using sys module:

Code:
import os
import sys

script_dir = os.path.dirname(os.path.abspath(sys.argv[0]))
  1. Using Path from pathlib:

Code:
from pathlib import Path

script_dir = Path(__file__).resolve().parent

<li>Using <code>__file__</code>:</li>

<pre class="lang-py prettyprint-override"><code>import os

script_dir = os.path.dirname(os.path.abspath(__file__))
