System information for pedants

Project description

Syskit provides a uniform API to system details across all platforms. It is a tough task to walk the fine line between a usable platform-neutral API while still accurately providing platform specific details, but syskit tries.

Initially syskit is targeting process information.

Documentation: xxx



CI: xxx

Supported Python versions: 2.7, 3.4, PyPy, PyPy3


Syskit is built using CFFI so when installing from source on CPython a working CFFI installation and compiler toolchain is required. The normal distutil commands are used to build and install.


Tests are run using py.test but a py.test script is bundled which can be used to run the tests. Because of the nature of syskit there are some tests which will only work when having root permissions, so those will be skipped if adequate permissions are not available. If you are trusting enough the full test suite should ideally be run once as a normal user and once as root.


Syskit is covered by the MIT license, see the LICENSE and AUTHORS files for details.
