A tool that makes creating command line flags super easy.

Project description PyPI package Documentation Status

A tool that makes creating command line flags super easy.

Similar to argparse, switching is no problem at all! You can even use the FlagParserExtended as if it were a normal ArgumentParser for full integration with existing arguments.

Install with:

pip install ezflags

Here’s a simple example:

import ezflags

parser = ezflags.FlagParser()
parser.add_flag('--flag', '-f', value=True, help="A demo flag.")

flags = parser.parse_flags()

To integrate with ArgumentParser:

from ezflags.ext import FlagParserExtended

parser = FlagParserExtended()
parser.add_flag('--flag', '-f', value=True, help="A demo flag.")
parser.add_argument('--arg', '-a', help="A demo argument.")

args = parser.parse_args() # Flags are included, too!

This can be invoked as such:

python --flag
# With ArgumentParser()
python --flag --arg arg
