docopt: A command-line interface description language and parser that will make you smile

[ console, library, mit ] [ Propose Tags ]

Docopt parses command-line interface usage text that adheres to a familiar syntax, and from it builds a command-line argument parser that will ensure your program is invoked correctly with the available options specified in the usage text. This allows the developer to write a usage text and get an argument parser for free.
