Search for the names and versions of popular OS distributions

Project description


A way to search OS distribution names and versions

Build Status

Aren't you tired of searching things like "Which version is Ubuntu Trusty again", or "is Debian 8 stretch or wheezy"? Well, I am... so I wrote this small python script to match OS versions with their names and vice versa.

Simply use the CLI to search like this:

$ distro trusty
Flavour:      Ubuntu
Full Name:    Trusty Thar
Name:         trusty
Versions:     14.04, 14.04.6

or use the version:

$ distro debian 7
Flavour:     Debian
Name:        wheezy
Versions:    7


Using Python pip:

$ pip install distro-names


Please feel free to contribute to this humble project - you can add distro names and versions to distro/ or improve the search capabilities in distro/

This is a pure Python implementation, so no libs are required. If you'd like to contribute, only PyTest and make are required...
