A light-weight library for easy interaction between Python and GNU screen.
This library allows you create, find and kill screen sessions programmatically from Python, as well as send (string) commands to these sessions. You can use this to start other software inside a screen session from a Python script, like this:
import pyscreen #Start a new session and give it something to do session = pyscreen.ScreenSession('myName') session.send_command('echo hello') #Kill a screen session with a particular name session = pyscreen.get_session_with_name('testSession') session.kill() #Print all the id of all sessions for session in pyscreen.get_all_sessions(): print(session.id)
git clone this directory, or run
pip install pyscreen
