Overview

This is a Spyder plugin for displaying an OS independent virtual terminal inside the main Spyder window. It currently supports both Unix-like and Windows operating systems.

Spyder-Terminal allows you to easily execute any bash command inside Spyder, even ncurses programs like nano or vi:

Server implementation

Besides a Qt terminal, spyder-terminal also provides a web-based terminal interface based on Tornado, which allows you to deploy and serve terminals from a Web/Javascript frontend. To deploy only the server, you can execute the following bash script:

# Shell option:

# On Unix systems this can be bash/tcsh/zsh or any Unix shell:
# bash: /usr/bin/env bash

# On Windows systems this might be cmd or powershell:
# cmd: %SystemRoot%\windows\system32\cmd.exe
# powershell: %SystemRoot%\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe

python -m spyder_terminal.server --port <PORT> --shell <Path to the terminal backend to execute>

Development and contribution

To start contributing to this project, you need to install the yarn and npm package managers. If you use conda, you can run the following command to do that:

conda install -c conda-forge nodejs yarn

Then, please install the package's dependencies with:

conda create -n spyder-terminal-dev -c conda-forge --file requirements/{conda,conda_win}.txt

depending on your operating system.

Afterwards, you need to run

python setup.py build_static

to build the Javascript components for this plugin.

Finally, in order to run our test suite, please install its required dependencies with

conda install -c conda-forge --file requirements/tests.txt

and use pytest to run the server and client tests for the terminal like this

pytest .
