oh-my-py

IPython isn't only an excellent Python REPL -- it can be a formidable general-purpose command shell if configured properly, easily capable of being a replacement for zsh, fish, et al.

oh-my-py is a proof-of-concept command shell thing for IPython. It's somewhere between a collection of utilities, and a fully-featured command shell. Essentially, it's a brain dump of various IPython-as-a-command-shell ideas.

Example

> fn = 'test.txt'
> with open(fn, 'w') as f:
      f.write('Hello world!')
> x = `cat test.txt`
> print x
Hello world!
> vim {fn}
> x = !cat {fn}
> print x
Hello edited file!

Install

Clone the git repository and run the install script:

$ git clone https://github.com/ianpreston/oh-my-py.git && cd oh-my-py
$ ./install.sh

You can run it from your existing shell to give it a try:

$ /usr/bin/login -f -l YOUR_USERNAME /usr/local/bin/ipython --profile sh

Or, more simply:

$ ipython --profile sh
