Testing

(obviously) Fan of
click

attrs
, and
requests

There's just so many I wish I had the time/excuse to play with

Usually, when I find a library I like, I go look at what it's implemented using 🙂
attrs
is used in plenty of libraries

It's by far the least-bad CLI toolkit (I don't think there could ever be a "good" one, just varying levels of bad) I just wish it was open a little more to accepting contributions/additional pluggable functionality

Yeah. Pants team makes a point of being very open to welcoming contributions of all kinds, and being extensible as heck so it can be used very flexibly regardless of what maintainers accept into core.
