A python source viewer.
A convenient command line tool to check python source code from the python standard library and user installed packages.
Running Pykaboo opens a new tab in your browser listing your python standard library modules folder and user installed packages folder. New paths can also be added to this list.
When clicking on a .py file, python syntax is highlighted and lines are numbered.
Pykaboo shows only ‘.py’ files and directories by default. But you can also allow files with other extensions to be viewed:
$ pykaboo allow .css
Or you can add custom directories next to the default links to the standard library modules and user installed packages:
$ pykaboo add ~/Documents/my_python_projects
For a list of commands:
$ pykaboo help
