+------
+
+`Plac <https://pypi.python.org/pypi/plac>`_ is a python module that allows developing command line applications. In fact
+plac is a simple wrapper over the python standard library `argparse <http://docs.python.org/2/library/argparse.html>`_, it hides most of its
+complexity by using a declarative interface: the argument parser is inferred
+rather than written down by imperatively. It is targetting especially unsophisticated
+users, programmers, sys-admins, scientists and in general people writing throw-away
+scripts for themselves, choosing the command-line interface because it is quick
+and simple.
