Simple library to support live coding

Project description

Build status PyPI Version

A simple library to support live coding in python. Modeled after the idioms in

Quick Start

Install livecoder from pypi:

pip install live

Open an example file with your favorite editor:

git clone     # grab an example
vi livecoder/examples/             # open in your favorite editor

And tell live to watch the script:

cd livecoder/examples                 # move to where script is importable
live                      # and watch output for errors

Every time you save the script, live reloads it and updates the live coding state. You’ll probably want to set up your editor to save after every keystroke, or save once per second. For example in Vim 7.4+ you can save after each modification using:

autocmd TextChanged,TextChangedI <buffer> write


Apache 2.0
