Website

http://xon.sh

Package

xonsh website, BSD 3-clause

Enables additional Bash-like syntax while at the command prompt. For example, the !! syntax for running the previous command is now usable.Note that these features are implemented as precommand events and these additions do not affect the xonsh language when run as script. That said, you might find them useful if you have strong muscle memory.

Warning: This xontrib may modify user command line input to implement its behavior. To see the modifications as they are applied (in unified diffformat), please set $XONSH_DEBUG to 2 or higher.

This xontrib is preinstalled with xonsh.

Usage:

coreutils

Website

Package

xonsh website, BSD 3-clause

Additional core utilities that are implemented in xonsh. The current list includes:

  • cat

  • echo

  • pwd

  • tee

  • tty* yes

In many cases, these may have a lower performance overhead than the posix command line utility with the same name. This is because these tools avoid the need for a full subprocess call. Additionally, these tools are cross-platform.

This xontrib is preinstalled with xonsh.

distributed

Website

http://xon.sh

Package

xonsh website, BSD 3-clause

The distributed parallel computing library hooks for xonsh. Importantly this provides a substitute ‘dworker’ command which enables distributed workers to have access to xonsh builtins.

Furthermore, this xontrib adds a ‘DSubmitter’ context manager for executing a block remotely. Moreover, this also adds a convenience function ‘dsubmit()’ for creating DSubmitter and Executor instances at the same time. Thus users may submit distributed jobs with:

with dsubmit('127.0.0.1:8786', rtn='x') as dsub:
    x = $(echo I am elsewhere)

res = dsub.future.result()
print(res)

This is useful for long running or non-blocking jobs.

This xontrib is preinstalled with xonsh.

Usage:

Run the following command to enable (or add it to your .xonshrc file to enable on startup.)

xontrib load distributed

free_cwd

Website

http://xon.sh

Package

xonsh website, BSD 3-clause

Windows only xontrib, to release the lock on the current directory whenever the prompt is shown. Enabling this will allow the other programs or Windows Explorer to delete or rename the current or parent directories. Internally, it is accomplished by temporarily resetting CWD to the root drive folder while waiting at the prompt. This only works with the prompt_toolkit backend and can cause cause issues if any extensions are enabled that hook the prompt and relies on os.getcwd()
