NAME: Cement AUTHOR: BJ Dierkes <firstname.lastname@example.org> DESCRIPTION: Cement is an advanced CLI Application Framework for Python. It promotes code re-use by way of a plugin system that enables plugins to be shared between any application built on Cement. The MVC and overall framework design is very much inspired by the TurboGears2 web framework. Its goal is to introduce a standard, and feature-full platform for both simple and complex command line applications as well as support rapid development needs without sacrificing quality. At a minimum, Cement configures the following features for every application: :: * Multiple Configuration file parsing (default: /etc, ~/) * Command line argument and option parsing * Dual Console/File Logging Support * Internal and External (3rd Party) Plugin support * Basic "hook" support * Model/View/Controller support for advanced application design * Text output rendering with Genshi templates * Json output rendering allows other programs to access your CLI-API The above provides any level developer with a solid, and fully functional cli application from the very start with more or less a single command via the paster utility. Cement brings an end to the 'hack it out, and [maybe] clean it up later' routine that we all find ourselves in under deadlines. Any application can utilize existing plugins from The Rosendale Project, or from other 3rd party resources to extend functionality. The plugin system is designed to allow portability of re-usable code.
