https://travis-ci.org/walchko/pyarchey.svg?branch=master Latest Version Downloads License

This is based off the archey command (which is also python) distributed by various linux, unix, and osx package managers. In order to avoid a naming conflict between them, I called this pyarchey.

PyArchey is developed for and tested under Python 2.7, no guarrentee is made about its suitability for Python 3.x. Pull requests adding 3.x support are welcome.

Currently, pyarchey supports logos for Arch, Fedora, LinuxMint, Ubuntu, SUSE, Debian, Raspbian, Gentoo, OpenBSD, generic Linux, and Slackware.

Requirements

Some of the custom code was removed and psutil was used to provide a cross-platform solution.

Install

The preferred way is to use pypi.org

pip install pyarchey

You can also do:

git clone https://github.com/walchko/pyarchey.git
cd pyarchey
python setup.py install

If you plan on doing some development, instead of install you can do develop.

Usage

To run:

pyarchey

args:

-d, --display display ascii logos for all distributions
-h, --help help
-j, --json output json of system info, nothing is printed to the screen
-z, --zeroconfig
 add .local to a hostname for zeroconfig to find IP address easier

History

As far as I am aware, this was started by @djmelik which was then forked by @mikeantonacci where I forked it form him.

Contributions

  • Dimitris Zlatanidis (dslackw) - Slackware support
  • mikeantonacci - fixed tab errors
  • Alessandro-Barbieri - Gentoo support
