extensible Python shell

Project description

twosheds is a command language interpreter (shell), written in Python.

Most existing shells are written in C which makes extension difficult. Python is comparatively easy to learn, read, and write, and is fast enough to operate as a day-to-day shell:

>>> import twosheds
>>> shell = twosheds.Shell()
>>> shell.interact()
$ ls
AUTHORS.rst       build             requirements.txt
LICENSE           dist              scripts           tests
Makefile          docs              setup.cfg         twosheds
README.rst        env               twosheds.egg-info
