weppy provides a built-in integration of the click command line interface, to implement and allow customization of command line scripts.
weppy automatically installs a command
weppy inside your virtualenv. The way
this helper works is by providing access to all the commands on your weppy
application's instance, as well as some built-in commands that are included
out of the box. weppy extensions can also register more commands there if they
desire to do so.
weppy command to work, an application needs to be discovered. To tell
weppy which application it should inspect, use the
It should be the import path for your application or the path to a Python file.
In the latter case, weppy will attempt to setup the Python path for you automatically
and discover the module name, but there is a chance this may fail.
Given that, to run a development server for your application, you can just write in your command line:
> weppy --app=myapp run
or, in the case of a single-file app:
> weppy --app=myapp.py run
To run an interactive Python shell, you can use the
> weppy --app=myapp shell
This will start up an interactive Python shell, setup the correct application
context and setup the local variables in the shell. By default, you have access
app object, and all the variables you defined in your application module.
If you want to add more commands to the shell script, you can do this easily. In fact, if you want a shell command to setup your application, you can write:
from weppy import App app = App(__name__) @app.command('setup') def setup(): # awesome code to initialize your app
The command will then be available on the command line:
> weppy --app=myapp setup
