Envoy: Python Subprocesses for Humans.

Note: Work in progress.

This is a convenience wrapper around the subprocess module.

You don't need this.

But you want it.

Usage

Run a command, get the response:

>>> r = envoy.run('git config', data='data to pipe in', timeout=2)

>>> r.status_code
129
>>> r.std_out
'usage: git config [options]'
>>> r.std_err
''

Pipe stuff around too:

>>> r = envoy.run('uptime | pbcopy')

>>> r.command
'pbcopy'
>>> r.status_code
0

>>> r.history
[<Response 'uptime'>]
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
