New Feature: Tor Interpreter
Hi all, after a couple months down in the engine room I'm delighted to announce a new Stem feature for advanced Tor users and developers!
The control interpreter is a new method for interacting with Tor's control interface that combines an interactive python interpreter with raw access similar to telnet. This adds several usability features, such as...
- Irc-style commands like '/help'.
- Tab completion for Tor's controller commands.
- History scrollback by pressing up/down.
- Transparently handles Tor authentication at startup.
- Colorized output for improved readability.
This is the last major feature going into the Stem's 1.2.0 release, which is coming out later this month. Until then you can easily give it a whirl with...
% git clone https://git.torproject.org/stem.git
% cd stem
Running into an issue? Got a feature request? As always feedback appreciated! -Damian
We have some questions for you Damian:
1. Are you working for the NSA?
2. Have you ever been approached by the NSA to insert backdoors in your software? (You can give a verbal "yes" with a shaking of the head to signify "no")
3. Are there backdoors in the Stem's interpreter for the NSA to make use of?
[[Edit: I spent a while trying to figure out if I should moderate this comment from an anonymous user or what -- but I decided to let it go through intact. Note that the real Damian answers below, and this is some person trolling you. But hey, make up your own mind. :) --Roger]]
