Hotwire is a Python-based object oriented crossplatform command execution shell. It is a part of the GoogleCode Project.
Hotwire is not a terminal emulator, nor is it something you can set as your Unix “login shell”; instead, Hotwire unifies the concepts of shell and terminal and can natively do about 80-90% of what one would normally do in a terminal+shell.
It’s perfect as an augmented command line interface for those running desktop linux like Ubuntu.
Practically speaking, Hotwire provides a modern command interface for developers and system administrators to interact with the computer.
Hotwire is Free Software and runs on Linux (with GNOME) and Windows (HotwireWindows).
