A curses-based utility script for tailing multiple files simultaneously.

Project Description

A curses-based utility script for tailing multiple files simultaneously.

I made this script for quickly tailing several log files in the same terminal window.


The easiest way to install this is through pip or easy_install:

pip install -U multitail-curses

You can also install from source by running:

python install


You can tail one to four files simultaneously. For example:

multitail foo.log bar.log

Press CTRL-C to stop tailing.


This project is open source under the MIT license.
