Project description

RunM is an opinionated version of subprocess, making it just that little bit more convenient to run shell commands from within Python code.

It is reasonably straightforward: ` import runm"echo it works") #=> returns 'it works\n'"echo 1 2 5 |cat") #=> returns '1 2 5\n' ` When a command that fails is run e.g. `"cat /not_a_file") ` an exception is raised just like subprocess. However, the error message generated includes STDERR and STDOUT, which is more convenient for debugging.


commandeer can be installed by unzipping the source code in one directory and using this command:

sudo python install

You can also install it directly from the Python Package Index with this command:

sudo pip install runm


See file LICENCE.txt in this folder


RunM is an open-source software. Everyone is welcome to contribute !
