Terminal emulator for prompt_toolkit.

Project description


*A terminal emulator widget for prompt_toolkit applications*


- Cross platform: Windows + Linux support.

Applications using ptterm

- `pymux <>`_: A terminal multiplexer,
written in Python.


Inserting the terminal into a prompt_toolkit application is as easy as
importing a `Terminal` and inserting it into the layout. You can pass a
`done_callback` to get notified when the terminal process is done.

.. code:: python

#!/usr/bin/env python
from prompt_toolkit.application import Application
from prompt_toolkit.layout import Layout
from ptterm import Terminal

def main():
def done():

application = Application(

if __name__ == '__main__':


- Thanks to `pyte <>`_: for implementing a
vt100 emulator.
- Thanks to `winpty <`_: for providing a PTY
like interface for the Windows console.
- Thank to `yawinpty` for creating a Winpty wrapper.
