Project description

PyBites Pysource

A command line tool to read Python source code.


You can install pybites-pysource from PyPI:

pip install pybites-pysource

This tool uses Python 3.x


You can use pybites-pysource:

  1. From the command line

     $ pysource -m re.match
     def match(pattern, string, flags=0):
     	"""Try to apply the pattern at the start of the string, returning
     	a Match object, or None if no match was found."""
     	return _compile(pattern, flags).match(string)

    To show the resulting code with paging call pysource with -p.

  2. From within Vim by selecting a module.callable adding this to your .vimrc:

     autocmd FileType python map <leader>py :exec '!python3.9 $HOME/bin/ -m <C-R><C-A> -p'<CR>

Check out our blog post for a demo.
