# cli-args

Do you belong to those who have to look up the calls you have to make to argparse? And are you longing for a way to just import the parsed arguments as you would import sys.argv? Then cli-args is the way to go!

cli-args is a Python library for an easier parsing of command line arguments. It wraps the popular argparse to allow importing parsed arguments from anywhere in the code. One of the key features is the way you define what arguments you accept. By providing a dictionary - that also can be read from a JSON file! - you can easily set all available command line arguments at one specific, easy-to-find place.

## Get it!

pip install cli-args


## Use it!

demo.py

import cli_args

# or: cli_args.from_file('path/to/schema.json')
cli_args.from_schema({
"description": "Process some integers.",
"arguments": [
{
"short": "a",
"long": "integer_a",
"var": "NUMBER",
"help": "The first integer",
"default": 0,
"type": "int"
},
{
"short": "b",
"long": "integer_b",
"var": "NUMBER",
"help": "The second integer",
"default": "0",
"type": "int"
}
]
})

print(cli_args.argv['integer_a']) # 3
print(cli_args.argv['integer_b']) # 5


python demo.py --integer_a=3 --integer_b=5
