Project description

Tail files, and do things with them.

Installation

Run pip install erudite or if it’s your thing: easy_install erudite. You’ll need to also get argparse if you’re using a Python less than 2.7.

This might work on Python 3+, but I haven’t tested it.

Examples

Send first words of your zsh history to [StatHat](http://www.stathat.com) (currently the default):

erudite –parser=zsh_history –logger=StatHatLogger –stathat-key=test@example.com ~/.zsh_history

If you just want to play around, and see what you can do:

erudite –parser=zsh_history –logger=PrintingLogger ~/.zsh_history

Developing

Parsers (used to parse lines) are in erudite/parsers.py, and loggers (used to do things with parsed lines) are in erudite/loggers.py.

Contributing

It would be totally awesome to have many many more options in this script. I’m totally open to contributions. But there are a few things that will help me:

  • Your fork should have a topic branch with your feature, requesting to pull against develop
  • Please don’t add any requirements for loggers to setup.py - catch ImportError and exit gracefully. (see StatHatLogger for an example)
  • If you’re adding a parser, it would be awesome if you could attach some sample input.
  • Just for fun, you might want to run pylint against your changes.
  • If you’re changing default settings, it’s totally cool. Just ask me first.
  • You should add yourself to Authors in the README.

In particular, here are some things/ideas that would be great to have:
