Create an argparse.ArgumentParser from function docstrings¶
Welcome! Additionally to the default behaviour of the
allows you to
automatically create a parser entirely from the docstring of a function, including the help, metavar, action, type and other parameters
Let’s you chain subparsers
There are a lot of argparse extensions out there, but through the use of the docrep package, this package can extract much more information to automate the creation of the command line utility.
See Getting started for more information.
Simply install it via
$ pip install funcargparse
Or you install it via:
$ python setup.py install
from the source on GitHub.
The package only requires the docrep package which we use under the hood to extract the necessary parts from the docstrings.
The package has been tested for python 2.7 and 3.5.
