''' A decorator-based method of constructing IPython magics with `argparse`
option handling.
New magic functions can be defined like so::
from IPython.core.magic_arguments import (argument, magic_arguments,
parse_argstring)
@magic_arguments()
@argument('-o', '--option', help='An optional argument.')
@argument('arg', type=int, help='An integer positional argument.')
def magic_cool(self, arg):
""" A really cool magic command.
"""
args = parse_argstring(magic_cool, arg)
...
The `@magic_arguments` decorator marks the function as having argparse arguments.
The `@argument` decorator adds an argument using the same syntax as argparse's
`add_argument()` method. More sophisticated uses may also require the
`@argument_group` or `@kwds` decorator to customize the formatting and the
parsing.
Help text for the magic is automatically generated from the docstring and the
arguments::
In[1]: %cool?
%cool [-o OPTION] arg
A really cool magic command.
positional arguments:
arg An integer positional argument.
optional arguments:
-o OPTION, --option OPTION
An optional argument.
