Overview

Introduction

According google search, there are no pure tail -f implementation in python.

For my own need, I wrote this huge mature library.

Comments, patches, wiki pages are welcome. Tickets and bug-reports aren't.

Installation

pip install pytailf

Usage

example:

from tailf import tailf
for line in tailf("/var/log/your.log"):
    print line
Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
