Project description

Shellstats reads your shell history and shows you the most used commands. Typical output looks like:

   Command              Count      Percentage
 1 ls                   326        17.0%
 2 cd                   254        13.3%
 3 less                 172        8.99%
 4 sudo                 162        8.47%
 5 emacs                159        8.31%
 6 screen               146        7.63%
 7 echo                 103        5.38%
 8 top                  100        5.23%
 9 du                   85         4.44%
10 grep                 70         3.66%


Install it with a simple:

$ pip install shellstats

In addition if you want to see a pie chart of the above output, you need to have matplotlib installed (package ‘python-matplotlib’ in Debian/Ubuntu/Fedora).
