A library to capture sys.stdout and -err
StdGet is a small python 2 and 3 compatible library that doesn't require any modules to work.
What does it do?
StdGet's purpose is to be a way to capture the StdOut (Standard Output) and StdErr (Standard Error Output).
Sounds great! How does it work and how do I use it?
How to use it:
First, let's import StdGet:
import stdgetThen, let's say we want to capture the StdOut:
stdget.startstdoutcapture()And you're done! "But how do I get the information it captures?"
stdget.stdouthookwill give you a list. You can just do
stdget.stdouthook=to empty it.
How it works:
What it does is it adds a layer on top of the original 'sys.stdout.write' that actually 'takes' the data and copies it into the 'stdget.stdouthook' list. It works outside of the module's layer because the sys.stdout / -in and -err are global all across the session. That's also why you can just do
import stdgetand you don't have to do
from stdget import *(it doesn't matter).
