A Python CLI utility to monitor cpu temperature

Install

pip install tmonpy

or

$ # download the AppImage file from the releases page
$ wget https://github.com/gmagno/tmon/releases/latest/download/tmon-???????-x86_64.AppImage
$ chmod +x tmon-*-x86_64.AppImage

Usage

tmon -h
usage: tmon [-h] [-v] [-y YSIZE] [-x XSIZE] [-l MIN MAX] ...

Temperature Monitor (tmon v0.3.6) -- executes a program while
monitoring CPU temperature, reporting the min, max and mean
temperatures and plotting an ascii chart at the end to stderr.
All signals are redirected to the program.
If no program is passed, tmon runs as expected returning on
SIGINT (Ctrl-C).
For full documentation check the repo: https://github.com/gmagno/tmon

positional arguments:
CMD                   Command args to run.

optional arguments:
-h, --help            show this help message and exit
-v, --version         Shows tmon version.
-y YSIZE, --ysize YSIZE
                        Y-axis size in number terminal characters
-x XSIZE, --xsize XSIZE
                        X-axis size in number terminal characters
-l MIN MAX, --ylim MIN MAX
                        Y-axis view limits with min and max values. It is
                        ignored if the measured temperatures fall outside the
                        specified range.

return:
    tmon returns when the child program exits, stops, or is
    terminated by a signal. The return value of tmon is the return
    value of the program it executed.

examples:
    $ tmon echo How can a clam cram in a clean cream can
    How can a clam cram in a clean cream can
