Python version of linux sudo command without password prompt

Project description

Pudo Package

This is an Python Package for running Linux commands with root permission. We can see this as an alternative to Linux sudo command without password prompt. This is very handy when you are writing python automation scripts and need to deal with root privileges. You can use this as an python module or an Linux command.

Before using the pudo, please accept the Disclaimer:

user$ sudo python3 -m pudo.disclaimer # or python2
We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System
Administrator. It usually boils down to these three things:

	#1) Respect the privacy of others.
	#2) Think before you type.
	#3) With great power comes great responsibility.

PLEASE NOTE:
	Pudo Developers are not responsible for any misuse of Root Privileges

Enjoy Automation !!!

Below is the code snippet for using in python automation for running commands under root privilege:

user$ python3 # or python2
>>> import pudo
>>> (ret, out) = pudo.run(('ls', '/root')) # or pudo.run('ls /root')
>>> print(ret)
>>> 0
>>> print(out)
>>> b'Desktop\nDownloads\nPictures\nMusic\n'

Below is the cmd example for running commands under root privilege:

user$ pudo ls /root
