What is pyte? It’s an in memory VTXXX-compatible terminal emulator. XXX stands for a series video terminals, developed by DEC between 1970 and 1995. The first, and probably the most famous one, was VT100 terminal, which is now a de-facto standard for all virtual terminal emulators. pyte follows the suit.
So, why would one need a terminal emulator library?
Note: pyte started as a fork of vt102, which is an incomplete pure Python implementation of VT100 terminal.
Believe it or not, there’re project which actually need a terminal emulator library, not many of them use pyte though:
