Project description

Provides basic commands needed for Armstrong scaffolding


armstrong.cli is used as the entry point for all armstrong specific commands as well as being a replacement for the django script. The base package provides the init command which will create a new armstrong project at a given path.

To create additional armstrong commands, create a callable and specify it as an ‘armstrong.command’ entry_point via setuptools. If the command can be run outside of the context of an armstrong project, the callable should have the attribute requires_armstrong set to false. Additionally, if the command takes argument, a subparser from argparse will be passed to the optional build_parser method of your command.


We recommend installing this through pypi. You can install it like this:

pip install armstrong.cli


  • Create something awesome – make the code better, add some functionality, whatever (this is the hardest part).
  • Fork it
  • Create a topic branch to house your changes
  • Get all of your commits in the new topic branch
  • Submit a pull request

State of Project

Armstrong is an open-source news platform that is freely available to any organization. It is the result of a collaboration between the Texas Tribune and Bay Citizen, and a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. The first release is scheduled for June, 2011.

To follow development, be sure to join the Google Group.

armstrong.cli is part of the Armstrong project. You’re probably looking for that.
