  • Easy to reuse common options
  • Easy to create sub commands
    • Nested sub command is also supported

Environment

  • Python >= 3.5
    • No support for python 2.x

Install uroboros

$ pip install uroboros

How to use

Implement your command using uroboros.Command and create a command tree.

# sample.py
from uroboros import Command
from uroboros.constants import ExitStatus

class RootCommand(Command):
    """Root command of your application"""
    name = 'sample'
    long_description = 'This is a sample command using uroboros'

    def build_option(self, parser):
        """Add optional arguments"""
        parser.add_argument('--version', action='store_true', default=False, help='Print version')
        return parser

    def run(self, args):
        """Your own script to run"""
        if args.version:
            print("{name} v{version}".format(
                name=self.name, version='1.0.0'))
        else:
            self.print_help()
        return ExitStatus.SUCCESS

class HelloCommand(Command):
    """Sub command of root"""
    name = 'hello'
    short_description = 'Hello world!'
    long_description = 'Print "Hello world!" to stdout'

    def run(self, args):
        print(self.short_description)
        return ExitStatus.SUCCESS

# Create command tree
root_cmd = RootCommand()
root_cmd.add_command(HelloCommand())

if __name__ == '__main__':
    exit(root_cmd.execute())

Then, your command works completely.

$ python sample.py -h
usage: sample [-h] [--version] {hello} ...

This is a sample command using uroboros

optional arguments:
  -h, --help  show this help message and exit
  --version   Print version

Sub commands:
  {hello}
    hello     Hello world!
$ python sample.py --version
sample v1.0.0
$ python sample.py hello
Hello world!

If you want to use new sub command sample.py hello xxxx, you just implement new XXXXCommand and add it to Hello.

root_cmd = RootCommand().add_command(
    HelloCommand().add_command(
        XXXXCommand()
    )
)

You can see other examples in examples.

Develop

First, clone this repository and install uroboros with editable option.

$ git clone https://github.com/pddg/uroboros
$ cd /path/to/uroboros
$ pip install -e .

Use Pipenv for lint and test.

# Create environment
$ pipenv install --dev
# Execute lint by flake8
$ pipenv run lint
# Execute test by py.test
$ pipenv run test

Also support test with tox. Before execute test with tox, you should make available to use python 3.5 and 3.6, 3.7.
