Quo is a Python based toolkit for writing Command-Line Interface(CLI) applications.
Quo is making headway towards composing speedy and orderly CLI applications while forestalling any disappointments brought about by the failure to execute a CLI API.
Simple to code, easy to learn, and does not come with needless baggage.
Quo requires Python
3.8 or later.
- [x] Support for tabular presentation of data
- [x] Interactive progressbars
- [x] Code completions
- [x] Nesting of commands
- [x] Automatic help page generation
- [x] Syntax highlighting
- [x] Autosuggestions
- [x] Key Binders
You can install quo via the Python Package Index (PyPI)
pip install -U quo
from quo import echo echo(f"Hello, World!", fg="red", italic=True, bold=True))
from quo import echo echo(f"Quo is ", nl=False) echo(f"scalable", bg="red", fg="black")
Unlike the builtin print function,
echo function has improved support for handling Unicode and binary data.
It also supports handling of ANSI color sequences.
from quo import prompt prompt("What is your name?")
from quo.prompt import Prompt session = Prompt(bottom_toolbar="Python 🐍 is great") session.prompt("Type something:")
# Press [Tab] to autocomplete from quo.prompt import Prompt from quo.completion import WordCompleter completer = WordCompleter(['USA', 'UK', 'Canada', 'Kenya']) session = Prompt(completer=completer) session.prompt('Which country are you from?: ')
from quo import container from quo.widget import TextArea, Frame # Example of a simple layout content = TextArea("Hello world🌍") container( Frame( content, title="Quo: python🐍") )
from quo.table import Table data = [ ["Name", "Gender", "Age"], ["Alice", "F", 24], ["Bob", "M", 19], ["Dave", "M", 24] ] Table(data)
