A framework for command-line apps with multiple commands.

Project description

MultiApp is a framework so that you can give your applications a quick and easy way to have multiple functions at the command line. It’s simple to use - you just create a subclass of MultiApp like this:

class FileStamper(MultiApp):
FileStamper will manipulate logfiles in a special format. It is blah blah
blah...(more long description)
    name = "FileStamper"
    version = "1.0"
    shortdesc = "A logging package."

    def do_log(self, file, message):   # User types log at the prompt
        # Add the message to the log...
    do_log.usage = "FILENAME MESSAGE"
    do_log.descr = "Adds a new entry to the log file."

    def do_latest_entry(self, file, number=5): # User types latest-entry
        # Retrieve the latest log message...
    do_latest_entry.usage = "FILENAME [NUMBER]"
    do_latest_entry.descr = "Retrieves the log's latest entry."

MultiApp provides your program with:

  • Argument parsing that you can just treat like normal method arguments
  • Integrated help system that works out of the box
  • Very unobtrusive ways to define functionality
