Simple, Object-Oriented approach to Python CLI apps

Project description

pyCLI is a small library that makes writing command line applications easier. It can take care of command line argument (optparse), environment and configuration file (ConfigParser) parsing; logging (logging); and daemonization (os, sys). It also provides a handy test framework.

pyCLI helps you write well-formed and reusable scripts without having to deal with incompatible interfaces in the Python stdlib.

With PyCLI, a script is as simple as:

def main(app):
    app.log.debug("We're using cli.app!")
    if do_stuff():
        return 0
    else:
        return 1

if __name__ == "__main__":
    from cli.app import LoggingApp
    app = LoggingApp(main)
    app.run()
