Turns your Python script or module into an application with decent CLI.

Project description


Kickoff turns your Python script or module into an application with decent user interface.

For software developers…

Kickoff is inspired by utilities like invoke, fire, runfile. It has similar function with this difference that it looks at function signatures, therefore doesn’t need from the developer to use decorators or any dedicated API. This way Kickoff provides developers with following advantages:

  • Basic UI provided with zero overhead
  • Enhanced UI provided through annotations
  • Compatibility with environments where Kickoff is not installed
  • Testability and reusability of top-level commands
  • Shebang support

For software users…

Kickoff is built on top of stunning click module as well as third-party add-ons to provide the users with following features:

  • Hierarchical CLI interface
  • Correction suggestions for misspelled commands
  • REPL with command completion and access to underlying shell
  • GUI (experimental feature)
