Declarative wrapper for argparse

Project description

Argfarce makes it easy to declare argparse structures. Consider this example:

>>> class PersonalInfoParser(ArgumentParser):
...     class Meta:
...         prog = 'person.py'
...
...     name = Argument('-n', help="Cheese to use on your sandwich", required=False)
...     profession = Argument('-p', '--profession', choices=('developer', 'programmer', 'software engineer'), help="These are all pretty much the same", required=False)
...     comments = Argument(nargs='*')
...
>>> parser = PersonalInfoParser()
>>> parser.parse_args('-p programmer -n Ken foo bar spam'.split())
>>> print parser.name
Ken
>>> print parser.profession
programmer
>>> print parser.comments
['foo', 'bar', 'spam']

This software is not yet compatible with Python 3.
