Welcome! Additionally to the default behaviour of the
``argparse.ArgumentParser``, the ``funcargparse.FuncArgParser`` in this
package allows you to

1. automatically create a parser entirely from the docstring of a function,
including the `help`, `metavar`, `action`, `type` and other parameters
2. Let's you chain subparsers

There are a lot of argparse extensions out there, but through the use of the
docrep_ package, this package can extract much more information to automate
the creation of the command line utility.

See the documentation_ for more information.

Simply install it via ``pip``::

$ pip install funcargparse

Or you install it via::

$ python install

from the `source on GitHub`__.

.. _source on GitHub:

The package only requires the docrep_ package which we use under the hood to
extract the necessary parts from the docstrings.

The package has been tested for python 2.7 and 3.5.
