Command line argument parsing library for python

Project Description

Argument parsing for python developers

Usage:

import argument
f = argument.Arguments()
#Requried arguments, first argument will be stored as "candy"
f.require("candy", help="Candy name")

#optional unnamed value
f.maybe("soda")

#optional value, set a default, can be changed by adding: --num=30, or -n=30
f.option("num",
    25,
    help="How many pieces?",
    abbr="n"
    )
#add a switch, a flag with no argument
f.switch("reverse",
    help="Reverse ordering",
    abbr="r"
)
f.switch("unwrap", help="unwrapcandy", abbr="u")

#Process data before saving it
f.process("candy", lambda x: x.upper())

#Parse num as integer
f.process("num", lambda x: int(x))

f.validate("num", lambda x: x > 10)

#get data
arguments, errors = f.parse()

Example:

python tests/demo.py bubblegum

{‘num’: 25, ‘soda’: None, ‘reverse’: False, ‘candy’: ‘BUBBLEGUM’, ‘unwrap’: False}

python demo.py bubblegum cubacola

{‘num’: 25, ‘soda’: ‘cubacola’, ‘reverse’: False, ‘candy’: ‘BUBBLEGUM’, ‘unwrap’: False}

python tests/demo.py bubblegum -r -n=123 –unwrap

{‘num’: 123, ‘soda’: None, ‘reverse’: True, ‘candy’: ‘BUBBLEGUM’, ‘unwrap’: True}

python tests/demo.py bubblegum –n=5

{‘num’: 5, ‘soda’: None, ‘reverse’: False, ‘candy’: ‘BUBBLEGUM’, ‘unwrap’: False}

Autogenerated help:

print(f) ``` Usage: demo.py [OPTIONS] CANDY

Required arguments: CANDY Candy name

Optional arguments: SODA N/A

Options: -n –num=25 How many pieces?

Switches: -r –reverse Reverse ordering -u –unwrap unwrapcandy ```
