Manage Unix-like systems.

Project description

This module aims to manage Unix-likes operating systems. It manage both local or remote host in the same way. Commands can be executed interactively or not, and the result is a list of three elements:

  • the status of the command (boolean based on return code)
  • the standard output (stdout)
  • the error output (stderr)

For executed commands on localhost, the module used is subprocess and for remotes hosts, the module used is paramiko.

Code is available on Github (http://github.com/fmenabe/python-unix)
