A library to quickly build monolithic commandline tools.

Project description

Clank
=====
A library to quickly build monolithic commandline tools.

Standard Example
----------------
This creates a tool with a `hello` command which prints "Hello, world!":

from clank import Command, HelpCommand, Manager, UsageCommand

```python
class HelloCommand(Command):
"""Say hello."""
name = 'hello'

def run(self, args):
print("Hello, world!")

if __name__ == '__main__':
Manager([HelloCommand, HelpCommand, UsageCommand]).run()
```

Argument Example
----------------
The `ArgumentCommand` class uses `argparse` to parse commandline arguments.
This code reimplments the `HelloCommand` class to accept a name as an option:

```python
from clank import ArgumentCommand, HelpCommand, Manager, UsageCommand

class HelloCommand(ArgumentCommand):
"""Say hello."""
name = 'hello'

def add_arguments(self):
self.argparser.add_argument(
'-n', '--name', dest='name', nargs=1, default='world',
help="The name to run the app in.")

def run(self, args):
self.parse_args(args)
print("Hello, {}!".format(self.options.name))

if __name__ == '__main__':
Manager([HelloCommand, HelpCommand, UsageCommand]).run()
```
