A python command-line script template, for use with cookiecutter.


  • docopt for command-line arguments parsing
  • pytest for testing.
  • The bundle branch has a vendorized version of docopt.

To use this template

$ pip install cookiecutter
$ cookiecutter https://github.com/sloria/cookiecutter-docopt.git

You will be prompted for basic info (your name, script name, etc.) which will be used in the template.

That's all you need to get started.

Don't want to use docopt?

If you prefer not to use docopt for arguments parsing, simply remove the line install_requires=['docopt'] from setup.py and remove the docopt code in your script.
