Live-Streaming Tool Output

For synchronous runs for Python and Lug, Toolchest supports streaming remote output live to wherever you're running Toolchest.

For example, here's a python3 Toolchest call with streaming enabled and an example script:

import toolchest_client as tc

import time
for letter in ["A", "B", "C"]:
    print(f"Hello world {letter}")

You'll see the following lines printed as they are generated by the remotely-running Python script, one line per second:

Hello world A
Hello world B
Hello world C

Streaming and cancelling runs

With streaming enabled, tool execution terminates if the streaming connection is broken. This includes cancelling your job by entering Ctrl-C.

If a job is cancelled before encountering a bug in your script, the error may not be visible in Toolchest logs.

Supported Tools

Output streaming is supported for python3 and lug. For both, streaming is enabled by default.
