simple argparse wrapper (Python 2)


Argh provides a very simple wrapper for argparse.

Argparse is a very powerful tool; argh just makes it easy to use.

Here’s a list of features that argh adds to argparse:

 * mark a function as a CLI command and specify its arguments before
   the parser is instantiated;
 * nested commands made easy: no messing with subparsers;
 * infer command name from function name;
 * infer agrument type from the default value;
 * infer argument action from the default value (for booleans);
 * infer arguments from function signature;
 * add an alias root command help for the --help argument;
 * enable passing unwrapped arguments to certain functions instead of
   an argparse.Namespace object.

Argh is fully compatible with argparse. You can mix argh-agnostic and argh-aware code. Just keep in mind that dispatch() does some extra work that a custom dispatcher may not do.

This package installs the library for Python 2.
