**Chuda** is a very simple Python3 framework to create CLI (Command-Line-Interface) tools.

It will handle for you some basic stuff: parse configuration file, logging, argument parsing, signal handling etc...

## Features ##

* Represent commands and argparse arguments by Python classes
* Handle parsing of a configuration file for you (INI, JSON, or YAML with [pyyaml](
* Provide you a configurable logger, and some basic options to quiet/verbose mode
* Provide you a simple interface to run some shell commands
* Signals handling by decorator
* Integrates [argcomplete]( by default

import sys
import signal
from chuda import App, autorun, Command signal_handler, Option

class FooSubcommand(Command):
command_name = "foo"
description = "a foo subcommand"

def main(self):"foo")["bar"].run()

class BarSubcommand(Command):
command_name = "bar"
description = "the ultimate bar subcommand"

arguments = [
Option(name=["--path"], default="~")

def main(self):
process =
"ls", cwd=self.arguments.path

class FooBarApp(App):
app_name = "foobar"
