Collection of common interactive command line user interfaces, based on Inquirer.js.

Goal and Philosophy

Born as a Inquirer.js clone, it shares part of the goals and philosophy.

So, Inquirer should ease the process of asking end user questions, parsing, validating answers, managing hierarchical prompts and providing error feedback.

You can download the python-inquirer code from GitHub or download the wheel from Pypi.

Documentation

Documentation has been moved to ReadTheDocs.

But here you have a couple of usage examples:

Text

import inquirer
questions = [
  inquirer.Text('name', message="What's your name"),
  inquirer.Text('surname', message="What's your surname"),
  inquirer.Text('phone', message="What's your phone number",
                validate=lambda x, _: re.match('\d+', x),
                )
]
answers = inquirer.prompt(questions)

Example of Text Question

List

Shows a list of choices, and allows the selection of one of them.

Example:

import inquirer
questions = [
  inquirer.List('size',
                message="What size do you need?",
                choices=['Jumbo', 'Large', 'Standard', 'Medium', 'Small', 'Micro'],
            ),
]
answers = inquirer.prompt(questions)

Example of List Question

Checkbox

Shows a list of choices, with multiple selection.

Example:

import inquirer
questions = [
  inquirer.Checkbox('interests',
                    message="What are you interested in?",
                    choices=['Computers', 'Books', 'Science', 'Nature', 'Fantasy', 'History'],
                    ),
]
answers = inquirer.prompt(questions)
