Project description

(WORK IN PROGRESS)

Library for building interactive command lines in Python.

It could be a replacement for readline, but it’s more powerful:

  • Syntax highlighting of the input while typing. (Usually with a Pygments lexer.)
  • Multiline input.
  • Advanced code completion.

The Python repl

Run ./bin/prompt_toolkit-python-repl to get an interactive Python prompt with syntaxt highlighting, code completion, etc…

Example

from prompt_toolkit import CommandLine
from prompt_toolkit.line import Exit

def main():
    # Create CommandLine instance
    cli = CommandLine()

    try:
        while True:
            code_obj = cli.read_input()
            print('You said: ' + code_obj.text)

    except Exit: # Quit on Ctrl-D keypress
        return

if __name__ == '__main__':
    main()
