Choose Options using a CLI Checkbox Menu

Project description

CHOOSE OPTIONS

A simple CLI checkbox menu interface for choosing options.

img

Takes a list of options as an argument and returns a list of selected items from that list.

Options are chosen by entering their corresponding number or name. Multiple options can be selected in one go. Choices should be separated by spaces.

Also supported is specifying ranges of numbers, in the form x..y or x-y (where x and y are item numbers from the list, eg) 1..5 or 1-5).

Additionally you can use ..x or -x to specify everything up to the number x, and x.. or x- to specify everything from the number x until the last element.

Finally one can use wildcard globbing to match option name strings. For instance *.py would match all files with the extension .py.

Reserved words are toggle, reset, accept and quit (case insensitive). They can be used to carry out those respective actions. Typing just the first letter also carries out that action - ie) t, toggles all, r, resets, etc.
