Argdirective is a python module to detect the first command line argument as subcommand.
The argdirective project
Argdirective is a simple module which takes the first argument passed to your python script as subcommand and tries to find a directive module based on the basename of the script.
script.py subcommand --arg1 --arg2
Consider the following module:
site-packages │ ... │ └───configmount │ │ mount
as well as the following executable script
#!/bin/python import argdirective if __name__ == "__main__": argdirective.generator.run()
If you run
configmount mount --root /etc /mnt/configmount in your terminal argdirective will lookup the configmount package and redirect the arguments to the module mount. See the configmount project for more details.
