Gitter Codacy coverage Codacy grade Maintenance

Dish is a new Unix shell implemented in Python with Flask-like configuration and extensibility. It is currently in alpha stage of development. It works by having a Python script called "dish" somewhere in PATH. This script looks a bit like a single-file Flask application. Here is an example:

#!/usr/bin/env python3

from dish import Dish
dish = Dish()

# ansicolor color to be used in PS1 prompt
from dish.ext import ansicolor

dish.config['PS1'] = '<color fg="pink">$</color> '

if __name__ == '__main__':


Currently, it's not possible to install with Pip yet. To install the master branch:

$ git clone
$ cd dish
$ python3 install --user
