argunparse is intended to perform approximate reverse of argparse

Project description

package version from PyPI build status from Travis CI build status from AppVeyor grade from Codacy test coverage from Codecov license

The argunparse is intended to perform an approximate reverse of what argparse does. In short: generating string of command-line arguments from a dict and/or a list.

how to use

Simple example of how argunparse works:

import argunparse

options = {
    'v': True,
    'long-flag': True,
    'o': 'out_file.txt',
    'log': 'log_file.txt'
args = {

unparser = argunparse.ArgumentUnparser()
print(unparser.unparse(*args, **options))
# -v --long-flag -o=out_file.txt --log=log_file.txt in_file.txt

print(unparser.unparse_to_list(*args, **options))
# ['-v', '--long-flag', '-o=out_file.txt', '--log=log_file.txt', 'in_file.txt']

for more examples see examples.ipynb notebook.


Python >= 3.5.

No other runtime dependencies.

However, building and running tests requires packages listed in test_requirements.txt.

Tested on Linux, OS X and Windows.


For simplest installation use pip:
