Wrapper for doing beautiful commands

Project Description

.. image::
:alt: Code Health

Capris is a MIT-licensed Python library built for writing
composable apps that leverage the command line.

A simple example of writing your own git wrapper, complete
with other command-line utilities that you love and use on
a daily basis:

.. code-block:: python

>>> from capris import Command
>>> git, grep = Command('git'), Command('grep')

>>> pipe = git.log(n=10, pretty="oneline") | grep(r'[a-f0-9]\{40\}', o=None)
>>> str(pipe)
"git log -n 10 --pretty=oneline | grep -o [a-f0-9]\{40\}"

>>> response =
>>> response.status_code
>>> print response.std_out

``capris`` allows you to write code or tests that just calls
commands and helps you focus on writing the `commands that you
need`, not the code required to handle calling and getting
responses from the commands. ``capris`` does all of the mucking
around with strings and escaping for you.


- Built in support for pipes
- DSL for command generation
- Elegant responses and environment variables
- High-level unit tests for all classes
- Safe- ``capris`` doesn't touch the shell
- Smart option generation
- Support for nested subcommands
- Thread safety
- Transactions and redirection
- Works with both Python 2 and 3


To install Capris, simply:

.. code-block:: bash

$ pip install capris
