A general-purpose dataflow programming language based on Python, written in Python

Project description

Pythonect is a new, experimental, general-purpose dataflow programming language based on Python, written in Python. It aims to combine the intuitive feel of shell scripting (and all of its perks like implicit parallelism) with the flexibility and agility of Python.

Hello, world

Here is the canonical “Hello, world” example program in Pythonect:

"Hello, world" -> print

See the Pythonect Tutorial: Learn By Example for more examples and details.


There are a few ways to install Pythonect.

  1. You can install directly from PyPI using easy_install or pip:

    easy_install Pythonect


    pip install Pythonect
  2. You can clone the git repository somewhere in your system:

    git clone git://

    Then you should do following steps:

    cd pythonect
    python install

    Alternatively, if you use pip, you can install directly from the git repository:

    pip install \
            git+git:// \

For any of the above methods, if you want to do a system-wide installation, you will have to do this with root permissions (e.g. using su or sudo).
