monolith is an argparse based command line interface framework

Project Description

https://secure.travis-ci.org/lukaszb/monolith.png?branch=master

Monolith

monolith is simple framwork for creating command line tools. Subcommands are class based (approach and part of implementation was inspired by Django management commands, however monolith uses argparse instead of optparse).

Supported Python versions are 2.6/2.7, 3.2+ and PyPy.

Latest documentation can be found at https://monolith.readthedocs.org/en/latest/.
