Top 23 Python Terminal Projects

  • GitHub repo httpie

    As easy as /aitch-tee-tee-pie/ 🥧 Modern, user-friendly command-line HTTP client for the API era. JSON support, colors, sessions, downloads, plugins & more.

    Project mention: Building an API with FastAPI | | 2021-04-13

    At first, I saved a sample of the trending repositories HTML to avoid sending dozens of requests to Github. I use HTTPie as HTTP client to perform requests via the terminal.

  • GitHub repo rich

    Project mention: A TUI library for Kotlin? | | 2021-04-10

    the only cheat sheet you need

    Project mention: Sed command regex implementation problem | | 2021-04-15

  • GitHub repo glances

    Glances an Eye on your system. A top/htop alternative for GNU/Linux, BSD, Mac OS and Windows operating systems.

    Project mention: I made a terminal utility to monitor some system stats. Was wondering if you guys know of anything better or if I should continue dev work on it since we need it? | | 2021-04-06

    Glances - My go to, this one is light and quite amazing.

    Project mention: New gopher server and ideas | | 2021-04-10

    Hi all! I just recently hosted a home gopher server at gopher://, which right now includes a phlog. I also plan to add perhaps some news feeds via RSS (gopherfeed) and local weather reports probably through, though I know I can get text reports from floodgap. Does anyone else have some fun gopher ideas? I was thinking of text-based games as well. I know there is some interactive fiction, and I was thinking about creating something like a virtual garden visitors could plant in and look at through a "map." Anyway, gopher is really impressing me, and it seems perfect for keeping older tech alive in a new age.

  • GitHub repo HTTP Prompt

    An interactive command-line HTTP and API testing client built on top of HTTPie featuring autocomplete, syntax highlighting, and more.

    Project mention: Show HN: Ht – HTTPie Clone in Rust | | 2021-02-05

    This is what the googler project is for. If you're on some flavor of debian, install it with apt.

  • GitHub repo typer

    Typer, build great CLIs. Easy to code. Based on Python type hints.

    Project mention: Why Do Long Options Start with Two Dashes? | | 2021-04-08

    Were your expectations different?

    Are there any good articles on the benefits of following such rules (any fungible improvements to legibility or usability, as opposed to just "consistency amongst different tools")?

    Are there any tools which can validate whether any piece of software conforms to this standard (either by scanning the man pages, or the code, or a formalized format of parameters the app supports)? Personally, the closest i've found is Typer ( ) but without anything that can automatically reject non-conformant code as a part of a CI process, i think enforcing such formats would be a non-starter for me.

    Very similar to tmuxinator, but in python:
