A simple framework to create CLI tools

Project description


PyPI PyPI - Python Version GitHub Documentation Status codecov CircleCI

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...


  • 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
  • Signals handling by decorator


The documentation is accessible here


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"
    description = "Foobar application"

    config_path = ["./config.ini", "../config.ini"]

    subcommands = [FooSubcommand, BarSubcommand]

    def handle_ctrl_c(self, signum, frame):"Stopping...")
