Easily call processes from python

Project description

Perform is a python module for calling processes in a simple and easy way. Each program is added to the perform module as a function that returns the stdout printed by the program.

- To call a program:
import perform
stdout =

- To pass arguments to a program:
stdout = perform.git("ls-files", "-m")

- To call a program that contains symbols in its name:
stdout = perform._("pip2.7", "install", "perform")

- To get extra information from a program:
obj = # or

stdout = obj.stdout
stderr = obj.stderr
errcode = obj.errcode

- To call a command in the shell:
print(perform._("ls | grep 'py'", shell=True))

- To import a specific command:
from perform import ls


- To use perform for a non-blocking call:
perform.firefox("", no_return=True)
perform.firefox("", no_return=True)
perform.firefox("", nr=True)

##more examples
import perform

stdout =

print(perform.git("ls-files", "-m"))

print(perform._("pip2.7", "install", "perform"))

stdout = perform.raspistill("-o ~/image.jpg")

print(perform.python("-c", "import perform;print(perform.echo('hello'))")
