pecan.commands – Pecan Commands

The pecan.commands module implements the pecan console script used to provide (for example) pecan serve and pecan shell command line utilities.

class pecan.commands.base.BaseCommand

Bases: pecan.commands.base.BaseCommandParent

A base interface for Pecan commands.

Can be extended to support pecan command extensions in individual Pecan projects, e.g.,

$ pecan my-custom-command config.py

# myapp/myapp/custom_command.py
class CustomCommand(pecan.commands.base.BaseCommand):
    '''
    (First) line of the docstring is used to summarize the command.
    '''

    arguments = ({
        'name': '--extra_arg',
        'help': 'an extra command line argument',
        'optional': True
    })

    def run(self, args):
        super(SomeCommand, self).run(args)
        if args.extra_arg:
            pass
class pecan.commands.base.BaseCommandParent

Bases: object

A base interface for Pecan commands.

Can be extended to support pecan command extensions in individual Pecan projects, e.g.,

$ pecan my-custom-command config.py

# myapp/myapp/custom_command.py
class CustomCommand(pecan.commands.base.BaseCommand):
    '''
    (First) line of the docstring is used to summarize the command.
    '''

    arguments = ({
        'name': '--extra_arg',
        'help': 'an extra command line argument',
        'optional': True
    })

    def run(self, args):
        super(SomeCommand, self).run(args)
        if args.extra_arg:
            pass
run(args)

To be implemented by subclasses.

class pecan.commands.base.CommandManager
