Project description

Django Click

Project information:

Automated code metrics:

django-click is a library to easily write Django management commands using the click command line library.

  • Free software: MIT license

  • Documentation for the Click command line library:

  • Compatible with Django 2.2, 3.1, or 3.2 running on Python 3.6, 3.7, 3.8, 3.9, and PyPy.


pip install django-click


Create a command module as you would usually do, but instead of creating a class, just put a djclick command into <yourapp>/management/commands/

import djclick as click

def command(name):
    click.secho('Hello, {}'.format(name), fg='red')

And then call the command with:

$ ./ helloworld django-click
Hello, django-click

Check out the test commands for additional example commands and advanced usage.
