Project description

Flask shell command based on Flask-Script to enhance its shell.

It will automatically use your favorite Python REPL shell instead of the default one. The order is BPython to ptiPython to IPython to ptPython to Python.


pip is suggested:

pip install flask_shellplus


Use it with Flask-Script:

from flask_shellplus import Shell

def make_context():
    return dict(app=app, db=db, models=models)

manager.add_command('shell', Shell(make_context=make_context))

Run this in your shell:

python shell

Flask-ShellPlus will find the first available one in BPython, ptiPython, IPython, ptPython, and Python.

Or you can manually define the preferred shell with flag --plain, --bpython, --ptipython, --ipython or --ptpython just like shell_plus in DjangoExtensions.

Enjoy it!
