Search for the names and versions of popular OS distributions
A way to search OS distribution names and versions
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/data.py or improve the search capabilities in
This is a
pure Python implementation, so no libs are required. If you'd like to contribute, only PyTest and make are required...
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
