template Python program

Project description



This is a template Python program and utilities associated.


sudo pip install propyte

Set up Festival, eSpeak, Pico TTS and deep_throat for speech capabilities.

sudo apt install     \
    festival         \
    espeak           \
    libttspico0      \
    libttspico-utils \
sudo pip install deep_throat

Set up Telegram and Telegram messenger CLI for Telegram messaging capabilities.

sudo su -
apt install         \
    libreadline-dev \
    libconfig-dev   \
    libssl-dev      \
    lua5.2          \
    liblua5.2-dev   \
    libevent-dev    \
    libjansson-dev  \
    libpython-dev   \

cd /usr/share
git clone --recursive
cd tg
cd ..
chmod -R 755 tg/

Set up Pylint and Graphviz for UML representations

sudo apt install graphviz libgraphviz-dev python-dev
sudo pip install pylint pygraphviz

setup LXPLUS with Pushbullet messaging

Set up a Pushbullet account, create an access token and store a Pushbullet token in the file ~/.pushbullet. Install Pushbullet on a mobile device.

Miniconda2 is used as an environment. By default, Miniconda is installed at ~/miniconda2 and the Miniconda2 install path is prepended to PATH in ~/.bashrc.

chmod 755

export PATH=""${HOME}"/miniconda2/bin:$PATH"
pip install propyte --text="hello world"

This script loop monitors for new user connections (using psutil.users()) and sends an alert (using Pushbullet) is any are detected.


Web modules can be imported using the function smuggle. Use this functionality with due regard to security.

shijian_test = propyte.smuggle(
    URL = ""
sys_test = propyte.smuggle(
    module_name = "sys"

import_ganzfeld, silence

The context manager function import_ganzfeld can be used to import a module such that the module is isolated from command line options and arguments. This can be useful for ROOT.

with propyte.import_ganzfeld():
    from ROOT import *

The context manager function silence can be used to silence some code.

user interactions

There are various functions useful for user interactions: get_keystroke, get_y_or_n, get_input, get_input_time_limited, pause and interrogate.


The function engage_command is available for running Bash commands in the foreground or in the background using subprocess.


The function say is available for generating speech using a number of different speech programs, including Festival, eSpeak, Pico TTS and deep_throat.



This module provides Telegram messaging capabilities. It can send and receive Telegram messages. It does this using Telegram, Telegram CLI and pytg.

In order to use Telegram functionality, ensure that both Telegram and Telegram CLI are running. The function start_messaging_Telegram attempts to launch Telegram CLI if it does not detect it running.

/usr/share/tg/bin/telegram-cli     \
    -R                             \
    -W                             \
    -P 4458                        \
    -k /usr/share/tg/ \
    --json                         \
    --permanent-peer-ids           \
    --permanent-peer-ids           \
    --disable-output               \

Messages can be sent in a way like the following:

import propyte

propyte.send_message_Telegram(recipient = "@wbreadenmadden", text = "hi")

Messages receiving can be engaged in the following way:

import propyte

Messages received can be accessed in a number of ways using various function arguments.



Messages can be sent in ways like the following:

import propyte

    recipient = "",
    title     = "alert",
    text      = "This is an alert."

    recipients = [""],
    title      = "alert",
    text       = "This is an alert."

    recipient = "",
    title     = "price alert",
    filepath  = "prices.png"

This script sends Pushbullet alerts on detection of new users or users changes.


UML diagrams of a Python project can be generated using Pylint and Graphviz. This can be done by executing the Bash script in the working directory of the project. This executes the following commands:

pyreverse -my -A -o png -p ${project_name} **.py

This should generate two images, classes_propyte.png and packages_propyte.png. The classes image is a representation of the classes of the project, their respective data attributes (with types), their respective methods and their inheritances. The packages image is a representation of the module dependencies of the project.
