A task manager written in Python

Project Description


An awesome task manager written in python. A more awesome top like thing in your terminal !



`bash $ pip install ptop `


` $ ptop -t <theme> `

## Supported themes

  • colorful
  • elegant
  • simple
  • dark
  • light etc.

## Some Screenshots





`bash $ ptop -h `

## Known Issues

  • Sometimes garbage text appears on the screen, press Ctrl + L to clear. (Anybody having idea about this ?)
  • Though ptop is responsive across various terminal sizes as positioning is done according to terminal sizes, but sometimes things may break. If so, then try in a terminal of bigger size.

## Development

`bash $ git clone $ cd ptop $ python develop ` Note : ptop will create a log file called .ptop.log in the home directory of the user.

## Main modules : - ptop.core : Defines a basic Plugin class that other plugins in the ptop.plugins in inherit. - ptop.interfaces : The interface to the ptop built using npyscreen. - ptop.plugins : This module contains all the plugin sensors supported i.e Disk Sensor,`Memory Sensor`,`Process Sensor`, etc. ( Any new plugin should be added here). - ptop.statistics : Generate continuous statistics using background thread jobs by location plugins in the plugins directory. - ptop.utils : Custom thread classes.

## Main Dependencies - [npyscreen]( - [psutil]( - [drawille](
