I am working with a layer created from a csv file, upload it by means of python.

Now I need to save the layer that is loaded with the points like a ShapeFile.

Do you know if this is possible and how it is possible?

If you are using PyGIS you can save the layer as Shapefile in the following way.

import processing
from processing.core.Processing import Processing

path_shp = '/home/grand/Desktop/layer_name.shp'
processing.run("native:saveselectedfeatures", {'INPUT':layer,'OUTPUT':path_shp})
  • Which libraries should have been imported? – Adrian Chamorro Nov 6 '18 at 16:54
  • you should import the processing module. – Leo Cardona Nov 6 '18 at 18:09
