extension of fabric for handling prompts with pexpect
Fexpect is an extension to fabric for handling prompts with pexpect scripts.
Provisional documentation in these blogposts:
Seems it doesn’t work well with easy_install, please install with pip. Let me know if you know how to fix this.
from ilogue.fexpect import expect, expecting, run prompts =  prompts += expect('What is your name?','Jasper') prompts += expect('Where do you live?','Frankfurt') with expecting(prompts): run('command')
You can use the included fabfile.py to run the fexpect tests:
fab test -p 'yourlocalpassword'
Note however that the tests may have different requirements (more recent fabric version). You can install these with the traditional:
python setup.py test
