LUPE: a better cli app helper

Project description

When it comes to build command-line apps, there is nothing like LUPE


$ pip install lupe


  • Parses arguments
  • Outputs version when --version or -v
  • Outputs description and supplied help text when --help or -h


There is not mango emoji yet supported. So instead, I used a pear, but it kinda looks the same 😒

$ ./ dinner --mango
# -*- coding: UTF-8 -*-

from lupe import *
from foo import *

cli = lupe(`
	  $ foo <input>

	  --mango, -m  Include a mango

	  $ foo dinner --mango
	  	dinner 🍐
`, {
	flags: {
		mango: {
			type: 'boolean',
			alias: 'm'
	input: ['dinner'],
	flags: {mango: true},

foo(cli.input[0], cli.flags);


Based on meow from @Sindresorhus
