And djcli

clilabs: the python CLI that gets things done.

Sometimes I want to execute a python callback with some args on the command line, but i get frustrated that it always requires to wrap my command in a wrapper of some sort. Clilabs unfrustrates me.


$ pip install clilabs


$ clilabs
clilabs automates python callables parametered calls.

Things starting with - will arrive in clilabs.context.


    clilabs help your.mod:main
    clilabs debug your.mod -a --b --something='to see' how it=parses
    clilabs your.mod:funcname with your=args
    clilabs help clilabs.django
    clilabs help django
    clilabs clilabs.django:list auth.user
    clilabs django:list auth.user  # also works
    # refer to the root one
    clilabs ~django.db.models:somefunc somearg some=kwarg


$ clilabs debug ~your.mod:yourfunc -a --b --something='to see' how it=parses
Could not import your.mod
Args: ('how',)
Kwargs: {'it': 'parses'}
Context args: ['a', 'b']
Context kwargs: {'something': 'to see'}
