Welcome to CLI-mate

We introduce CLI-mate, a framework to facilitate development of user-friendly interfaces for command line programs.

In the agile development environment of bioinformatics, many command line programs are created quickly to fill the gaps between complex information processes. A command line interface (CLI) is sometimes sufficient for the task, but it limits adoption by a broader audience. As such, it is often necessary for the developer to create a wrapper that provides a more user-friendly interface. Furthermore, the CLI itself might not meet minimal requirements, or is subject to change. Dealing with these changes, as well as wrapping the program itself is the focus of this research.

Please note that this project is still in beta release.

Latest release: version 0.3 (11/29/2011)

The source code for CLI-mate is hosted on our GitLab server
