Why there is not my file in runner directory on Github Action?

I want to download kaggle's dataset automaticly on Github Action's server, and this is my code:

json_str = '{"username":"headwater","key":"My key"}'
if is_64bit_ubuntu():
    with open('/home/runner/.kaggle/kaggle.json', 'w+') as fp:
elif is_windows():
    with open('C:\\Users\\runneradmin\\.kaggle\\kaggle.json', 'w+') as fp:

I'm sure this code can run on my local machine, however when I put it on Github, it occurs error like this:

>           with open('/home/runner/.kaggle/kaggle.json', 'w+') as fp:
E           FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/home/runner/.kaggle/kaggle.json'

So how to solve this?


  • Bijay Regmi: Looks like your .kaggle directory does not exist so the file is not written there. Use os.mkdir("/home/runner/.kaggle") before writing file into it.
