  • Ergonomica

  • Ergonomica is a cross-platform shell language, implemented in Python. Ergonomica aims to modernize the terminal, in an easily-extensible and usable language, independent of the OS on which it runs. It uses existing core utilities such as the os and shutil packages, as well as other utilities written in Python, such as the suplemon editor, providing built-in tools that are not os-dependent. Existing Python language features such as asynchronous returning may replace components of the shell such as piping. ยป
