a model project for a Python command-line script

Project Description


Pizza is a sample demonstration project of a Python command-line script.

Pizza is the project you get when you render the Groome project template groome-python with its sample configuration file. For testing purposes, this project also serves as the “expected” value of that template. See the groome-python project page for more information about this project.

A minimal sample usage looks like–

$ pizza hello crazy world

The project page and source code is on GitHub, and releases can be found on PyPI (the Python Package Index).

Feedback is welcome. You can file bug reports and feature requests on the project tracker.

[This project and groome-python are still being worked on and are not yet usable.]


Pizza supports the following Python versions:

  • Python 2.7
  • Python 3.2
  • Python 3.3
  • PyPy

Pizza has no third-party dependencies.

Installing for Python 3 requires that Distribute be installed and that pip use Distribute.

To run the main pizza script from source:

$ python tomatoes garlic
input: tomatoes, garlic

This script is essentially a development convenience for running:

$ python -m ...

which is in turn equivalent to the command above that To get help and see all options:

$ python --help

To run project tests (which are already stubbed out):

$ python --run-tests
