Hey! Your series looks interesting. I'll be following along :)

  • No, I've actually never used cookiecutter.
  • I absolutely love Click, mainly because it's what I'm most familiar with :). I've not used argparse before.

Cookiecutter gives you quick prompts and generates the whole skeleton for cli app, in less than a couple of minutes you'll have a full directory with files like readme, license, setup.py, etc. It also generates a click.py file if you choose 1 on the click prompt, but I don't use it for the time being since I do it through argparse :) I wonder if I can change the prompts to generate an argparse driven py file instead, onto stackoverflow lol.

Thanks for the feedback on click.
