Command-line sylliΒΆ

Sylli can be used from the command line. If you’re running an installed version on *nix, the command line sylli will be installed as sylli-command.

$ sylli-command -s 'la kasa'

Otherwise, just run as usual:

$ python -s 'la kasa'

Full command documentation is available using the –help option:

$ sylli-command --help
