Introducing Plumbum: Shell Combinators
Write shell-like scripts in pure python (and never resort to writing bash scripts again!)

Plumbum provides local and remote process execution, path abstraction, lots of shell-like utilities and a command-line interface (CLI) application toolkit that beats optparse/argparse to the ground. Give it a try.
