Simple tool for creating CLI applications

Project description


Argy is a simple tool for creating CLI programs using python, it tries to remove all the fuzz that comes with the standard library.


import argy

def add_numbers(x, y, subtract=False):
    """Adder of numbers
    Just adds two numbers, nothing really special about it

    :param x: The first number
    :type x: int
    :param y: The second number
    :type y: int
    :param subtract: Should we subtract instead?
    :type subtract: bool
    if not subtract:
        return x + y
        return x - y

This will create a CLI-program with the expected arguments, see also

$ python -h
usage: [-h] [--subtract SUBTRACT] x y

positional arguments:
x                    The first number
y                    The second number

optional arguments:
-h, --help           show this help message and exit
--subtract SUBTRACT  Should we subtract instead?


Contributions are welcome!
