Command line argument parser

Project Description

tauon is a library for creating command line interfaces in an object oriented way.

The following features are implemented:

* gnu style long options (--long-option, --long-option=value, --long-option value)
* gnu style short options (-s, -s=value, -s value)
* gnu style combined short options (-xvf file => -x -v -f=file)
* user defined commands
* nested commands
* per command options
* per command help
* auto generated help

import sys
from tauon import Command, CommandError, expose

class HelloWorld(Command):
"""We use docstring for documentation."""

@expose('-h', '--help')
def help(self)
"""Show help and exit."""

def default(self):
print('Hello World!')

if __name__ == '__main__':
app = HelloWorld()
