Run Script Directly from Command Line


Github Project Address:https://github.com/sivel/speedtest-cli

It requires python installed first. 

wget -O speedtest-cli https://raw.githubusercontent.com/sivel/speedtest-cli/master/speedtest.py
chmod +x speedtest-cli
./speedtest-cli

If there is no python installed, you can install python first then run this spedtest-cli.py script. 

Here is an example from Alpine OS.
