It's like screen's stuff command, without screen

Project description

shtuff Deploy to PyPI

Shell stuff will stuff commands into a shell à la tmux send-keys or screen stuff.


If your environment is configured to use Python 3 by default:

$ pip install shtuff


$ pip3 install shtuff

Please note: shtuff only works on Python 3.7+!


In shell A, run:

$ shtuff as shell-a

In shell B, run:

$ shtuff into shell-a "git status"

Observe how shell A ran git status.

An example use case for shtuff new might be a setup script to open a couple shells automatically. Consider this script:

#!/usr/bin/env bash
termite -e "shtuff new vim" &
termite -e "shtuff new 'tail -f /var/log/somelog.log'" &

This script will open two terminals, one running vim, and one running tail.


Install your local copy:

$ pip3 install -e .

Unless you know what you are doing, we highly recommend running tests inside a virtual environment. Here is how you can create and activate a virtual environment:

$ python3 -m venv .venv
$ source .venv/bin/activate

You can leave the virtual environment via deactivate:

$ deactivate

Run tests:

$ make test


We release using Makefile, choose the relevant target:

$ make release-major
$ make release-minor
$ make release-patch

and wait for the automated deploy to PyPi!
