console script boilerplate

Project description

console script boilerplate

some boilerplate stuff for console scripts. inspired by now unmaintained pyCLI.

decorate your main function and register it in your setup.py as console_scripts entry_point [1]. the function will receive an app object as argument.

you get:

  • pythons ArgumentParser
  • KeyboardInterrupt is catched
  • SIGTERM is handled, so that context managers will exit properly
  • logging helper

exit_handler and sigterm_handler may be customized.
