Description

Butterfly is a tornado web server written in python which powers a full featured web terminal.

The js part is heavily based on term.js which is heavily based on jslinux.

Try it

    $ pip install butterfly
    $ butterfly.server.py

Then open localhost:57575 in your favorite browser and done.

Run it with systemd (linux)

Systemd provides a way to automatically activate daemons when needed (socket activation):

    $ cd /etc/systemd/system
    # curl -O https://raw.githubusercontent.com/paradoxxxzero/butterfly/master/butterfly.service
    # curl -O https://raw.githubusercontent.com/paradoxxxzero/butterfly/master/butterfly.socket
    # systemctl enable butterfly.socket
    # systemctl start butterfly.socket

Contribute

and make the world better (or just butterfly).

Don't hesitate to fork the repository and start hacking on it, I am very open to pull requests.

If you don't know what to do go to the github issues and pick one you like.

If you want to motivate me to continue working on this project you can tip me, see: http://paradoxxxzero.github.io/about/

The dev requirements are coffee script and compass for the client side. Run python dev.py --debug --port=12345 and you are set (yes you can launch it from your regular butterfly instance)
