# pyspark.streaming.StreamingContext.textFileStream¶

StreamingContext.textFileStream(directory: str) → pyspark.streaming.dstream.DStream[str][source]

Create an input stream that monitors a Hadoop-compatible file system for new files and reads them as text files. Files must be written to the monitored directory by “moving” them from another location within the same file system. File names starting with . are ignored. The text files must be encoded as UTF-8.
