runp exports Python functions from files to the command line

Project Description

runp exports Python functions from files to the command line. You don’t need to change your existing code.

If you have a file named with:

def foo():
    """beeps a lot"""
    print "beep beep"

def bar(text):
    """Prints things

        text (str): The text to print
    print text

And you want to run it in the command line just do:

$ runp foo
beep beep

You can also pass arguments to your functions:

$ runp bar:"this is sweet!"
this is sweet!

Functions with names starting with _ are hidden.

You can list available functions with:

$ runp -l
Available functions:
foo    beeps a lot
bar    Prints things

And get info on a specific function:

$ runp -d bar
Displaying docstring for function bar in module myfile

    Prints things

        text (str): The text to print

Syntax for calling functions is:

$ runp function_name:arg1value,arg2=arg2value

The concept, syntax for commands and initial code are heavily inspired by fabric’s task system.
