A framework to create simple, interactive command line tools.

Project Description

A framework to create simple, interactive command line tools.


A basic Hello World example

>>> import navigator
>>> nav = navigator.Navigator(intro="Welcome")
>>> @nav.route('Hello World', "A simple Hello World")
>>> def hello_world():
>>>     navigator.ui.text_success("Hello World!")
0 - quit
1 - Hello World - A simple Hello World
What do you want to do?

You can then select the option you would like to take. Entering ‘1’ call the hello_world function.

Navigator also includes prompts for user input

>>> @nav.route('Hello Name', "A more advanced Hello World")
>>> def hello_name():
>>>     name = navigator.ui.prompt("What is your name?")
>>>     navigator.ui.text_success("Hello {}!".format(name))

There are more complete examples in the examples directory.

How to Install
