argunparse is intended to perform approximate reverse of argparse

Project Description

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.


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:

pip3 install argunparse


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))
