true and false vs. "truthy" and "falsey" (or "falsy")

by Jesse Farmer

Many programming languages, including Ruby, have native boolean (true and false) data types. In Ruby they're called true and false. In Python, for example, they're written as True and False.

But oftentimes we want to use a non-boolean value (integers, strings, arrays, etc.) in a boolean context (if statement, &&, ||, etc.). So someone designing a language has to decide what values count as "true" and what count as "false." A non-boolean value that counts as true is called "truthy," and a non-boolean value that counts as false is called "falsey."

Function to return width of terminal running the script. Perfect for CLI apps in determining available space for formatting output data. If run as a script simply prints the number.
View terminal_width.py
#!/usr/bin/env python
import subprocess
command = ['tput', 'cols']
def get_terminal_width():
try:
width = int(subprocess.check_output(command))
