Fish - most important Python package since distutils
07 May 2010
Ludvig Ericson ("Sweden-based backend-centric super-programmer.") yesterday released the most important Python package you'll ever see this year. Sort of. It animates a little fish on your terminal that goes back and forth across the screen.
Maybe I'm exaggerating a bit. This is the kind of superficial hype that made Rails successful at least. What the package is really useful for is a great start for those who want to do those fancy writes to the terminal without linebreaks. Spoiler alert:
sys.stderr.write("\x1b[2K\r" + fish + "\r")
