  • CLI: add --help-all and various cosmetic fixes: (#125), (#126), (#127)
  • CLI: add root_app property (#141)
  • Machines: getattr now raises AttributeError instead of CommandNotFound (#135)
  • Paths: bugfix to cwd interaction with Path (#142)
  • Paths: read/write now accept an optional encoding parameter (#148)
  • Commands: renamed setenv to with_env (#143)
  • Commands: pipelines will now fail with ProcessExecutionError if the source process fails (#145)


  • Paramiko now supports Python 3, enabled support in Plumbum
  • Terminal: added prompt(), bugfix to get_terminal_size() (#113)
  • CLI: added cleanup(), which is called after main() returns
  • CLI: bugfix to CountOf (#118)
  • Commands: Add a TEE modifier (#117)
  • Remote machines: bugfix to which, bugfix to remote environment variables (#122)
  • Path: read()/write() now operate on bytes


  • Force /bin/sh to be the shell in SshMachine.session() (#111)
  • Added islink() and unlink() to path objects (#100, #103)
  • Added access to path objects
  • Faster which implementation (#98)
  • Several minor bug fixes


  • Moved atomic and unixutils into the new fs package (file-system related utilities)
  • Dropped plumbum.utils legacy shortcut in favor of plumbum.path.utils
  • Bugfix: the left-hand-side process of a pipe wasn't waited on, leading to zombies (#89)
  • Added RelativePath (the result of Path.relative_to)
  • Fixed more text alignment issues in
  • Introduced ask() and choose to cli.terminal
  • Bugfix: Path comparison operators were wrong
  • Added connection timeout to RemoteMachine


  • Command.popen: a new argument, new_session may be passed to Command.popen, which runs the given in a new session (setsid on POSIX, CREATE_NEW_PROCESS_GROUP on Windows)
  • Command.Popen: args can now also be a list (previously, it was required to be a tuple). See
  • local.daemonize: run commands as full daemons (double-fork and setsid) on POSIX systems, or detached from their controlling console and parent (on Windows).
  • list_processes: return a list of running process (local/remote machines)
  • SshMachine.nohup: "daemonize" remote commands via nohup (not really a daemon, but good enough)
  • atomic: Atomic file operations (AtomicFile, AtomicCounterFile and PidFile)
  • copy and move: the src argument can now be a list of files to move, e.g., copy(["foo", "bar"], "/usr/bin")
  • list local and remote processes
  • cli: better handling of text wrapping in the generated help message
  • cli: add a default main() method that checks for unknown subcommands
  • terminal: initial commit (get_terminal_size)
  • packaging: the package was split into subpackages; it grew too big for a flat namespace. imports are not expected to be broken by this change
  • SshMachine: added password parameter, which relies on sshpass to feed the password to ssh. This is a security risk, but it's occasionally necessary. Use this with caution!
  • Commands now have a machine attribute that points to the machine they run on
  • Commands gained setenv, which creates a command with a bound environment
  • Remote path: several fixes to stat (StatRes)
  • cli: add lazily-loaded subcommands (e.g., MainApp.subcommand("foo", "")), which are imported on demand
  • Paths: added relative_to and split, which (respectively) computes the difference between two paths and splits paths into lists of nodes
  • cli: Predicate became a class decorator (it exists solely for pretty-printing anyway)
  • PuttyMachine: bugfix



  • Paramiko integration #10
  • CLI: now with built-in support for sub-commands. See also: #43
  • The "import hack" has moved to the package's, to make it importable directly #45
  • Paths now support chmod (on POSIX platform) #49
  • The argument name of a SwitchAttr can now be given to it (defaults to VALUE) #46


  • Windows: path are no longer converted to lower-case, but __eq__ and __hash__ operate on the lower-cased result #38
  • Properly handle empty strings in the argument list #41
  • Relaxed type-checking of LocalPath and RemotePath #35
  • Added PuttyMachine for Windows users that relies on plink and pscp (instead of ssh and scp) #37


  • Rename cli.CountingAttr to cli.CountOf
  • Moved to Travis continuous integration
  • Added unixutils
  • Added chown and uid/gid
  • Lots of fixes and updates to the doc
  • Full list of issues
