Build Status

Support via Gratipay

An Elixir module inspired by Python's sh package.

allows you to call any program as if it were a function.

Adding Sh to Your Project

To use Sh with your projects, simply edit your mix.exs file and add it as a dependency:

  defp deps do
    [{:sh, "~> 1.1.2"}]


iex> Sh.echo "Hello World!"
"Hello World!\n"


commands accept as the last argument a list of options.
Sh.curl "", o: "page.html", silent: true

The equivalent call without using this feature would be:

Sh.curl "-o", "page.html", "--silent", ""


Underscores in a program name or keyword options are converted to dashes.
