How to Make a single Folder Using Python

the below codes are tested, proved and sure codes to create a single folder in python without wasting time writing bulky codes just to implement a simple task of creating just “a” folder

Code Snippet Test 1 #Example 1

import os

os.mkdir('shopinson_directory/')

this code snippet throws FileExistsError if the ‘shopinson_directory‘ already exists in the current folder/directory 

Code snippet Test 2  #Example 2

from pathlib import Path

p = Path('shopinson_directory/')
p.mkdir()

this second Test 2 #Example 2 throws FileExistsError as #Example 1

Now to ignore the FileExistsError been thrown, use the below code to create  a single folder in python

from pathlib import Path

p = Path('shopinson_directory')
p.mkdir(exist_ok=True)

this FileExistsError is bypassed by defining exist_ok=True argument to .mkdir():
