Server implementation

Besides a Qt console, spyder-terminal also provides a web-based terminal interface based on Tornado, which allows you to deploy and serve terminals from a Web/Javascript frontend. To deploy only the server, you can execute the following bash script:

cd spyder_terminal/server

# Shell option:

# On Unix systems this can be bash/tcsh/zsh or any Unix shell:
# bash: /usr/bin/env bash

# On Windows systems this might be cmd or powershell:
# cmd: %SystemRoot%\windows\system32\cmd.exe
# powershell: %SystemRoot%\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe

python main.py --port <PORT> --shell <Path to the terminal backend to execute>

Development and contribution

To start contributing to this project, you must have installed the bower package manager, then you can execute python setup.py install to test your changes on Spyder. We follow PEP8 and PEP257 style guidelines.
