PyArchey2 is a fork of PyArchey. It is an attempt to speed up PyArchey by introducing multithreading and dropping support for Python2.

Project description

PyArchey2 drops support for Python 2.7. The motivation for PyArchey2 is performance. Main changes includes multi-threading to speed up information gathering and uses f-strings for string formatting. Also, added logging and bytes labels are expanded to yottabytes.

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 pyarchey2

You can also do:

git clone https://github.com/renyi/pyarchey2.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
--verbose enables more verbose messages
--debug print debug messages

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
