Parses a file with a certain structure and converts to the desired metric unit.
Final individual project for the “Tendencias en desarrollo de aplicaciones” class.
## App objective
This CLI (Command Line App) can be used to convert from one longitude unit from the International Unit System to another one.
## App installation
First, you need to have pip installed; it’s the python package manager that you’ll use to then install the application. You can get it [here](https://www.liquidweb.com/kb/install-pip-windows/), however, it should be preinstalled on your system; still, I recommend upgrading to the latest version to avoid conflicts.
After installing pip, you can just run this command: pip install unitrans-evalir
When you install it with pip (beware, this will also install all of the CLI dependencies), you can then use it by running UniversalTranslator –help: this will display the help file with all the command options.
` pip install unitrans-evalir UniversalTranslator --pathname input.txt --writepath output.txt `
This example will take the input.txt file that you have created on the folder you’re in, process the contents, and write to the output.txt file the converted units.
### Note for windows users
For using the command line app, you MUST have installed these 3 things:
- The latest version of Python 3.
- The latest version of PyPI.
- Git Bash. Using the normal windows prompt and powershell will not work. You MUST use the linux subsystem command line or the Git bash to use the application.
### Input Format example:
1 m cm: 1 meter to centimeters. 2 dm km: 2 decimeters to kilometers. For further info about usage, please refer to [this table on wikipedia.](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metre)
Please take a look at the CONTRIBUTING.MD file.
