I need to develop a python CLI framework.
For example if i need to set an ip address in linux:
ifconfig eth0 172.16.25.125
I should be able to use python to do the above.
1. The user will execute a python script to which i will pass the params eth0 and ip address (something like ifconf.py eth0 172.16.25.125)
2. Within the script i grab the params and do something to the effect of user executing 'ifconfig eth0 172.16.25.125' from the shell.
3. There are other such commands for which i will be using python scripts. I came across pyCLI, but it doesn't have much documentation, so couldn't figure out how to move forward.
4. The CLI framework needs to reuse code so i didn't want to use pure python and develop a framework from scratch. Rather use something like pyCLI/CLIFF.
The problem is lack of documentation with examples on how to use the above.
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
Regards & Thanks,
