@requires:
    'expected_arguments' = {   -- categories are synonymous to the arguments you pass
        'category_a' : { -- this is will be whatever you name your argument, see the example below
            'arguments: (

            'required' : True || False,
            'returns' : 'string' -- default is string but you may pass the string name of any
               python variable type or pass in a custom object
