A few simple methods to create interactive console applications.

Project Description
SimpleMenus is a small and simple python package for creating interactive
console applications. It allows to prompt the user for strings, integers,
dates, booleans, lets him choose between various options and offers
lightweight menus.

I use it for small utilities and prototypes whenever I need a little bit of
interaction with the user. For more complex applications you should look at
something like curses instead (

# print birthday
print(get_date("Enter your birthday"))

# print selection
print(get_from_list(['One', 'Two', 'Three']))

# return if user doesn't want to continue
if not get_boolean('Continue?'):

You can find more in the examples and test direcories and an API documentation at doc/simplemenus.html.

Tested with Python 2.7.5 and Python 3.3 on Windows and Linux.
