A Python package for providing feedback and interaction from the command line
- boolean_prompt (y/N)
- string prompt
- numeric prompt
- menu/choice prompt
prompts user and reads user response
validates user response
if response invalid?
- prompt user again?
- fail and bail out?
- allow developer to decide!
Prints a message and waits for user to acknowledge (e.g. by hitting 'Enter')
Use StatusLine objects to create lines similar to this:
s = promptly.StatusLine('Some Text Here', success='OK').write()
This gives output like:
- Some Text Here [OK]
You can also use status objects as context managers:
- with promptly.StatusLine('Message', success='OK', failure='FAIL', warning='WARN'):
- # do stuff here
p = promptly.Progess(100) p.update(20) p.display()
keeps track of a current and a total (e.g. amount of file read &total file size)
automatically calculates percentage done, and formats output
gives output like:
blahblah [====> ] 20%
uses sequence: [|/-]
maybe as context mgr also?
like the spinner but uses the sequence: [.o0o]
Colorize output? (making this portable across Unix/Win32 might be tricky)
- perhaps integrate with colorama (http://pypi.python.org/pypi/colorama)?
