PyCon 2019 | Writing Command Line Applications that Click

Speaker: Dave Forgac


Click is a Python package that helps you create well-behaved command line interfaces with minimal code.

In this tutorial you will:

  • Learn what makes a command line application “”well-behaved””
  • Build an application that exercises the most commonly-used features of Click
  • Get an overview of the more advanced functionality available
  • Package and install the application

You will leave with an example application that you can use as a basis for your own command line development.
