Defines command class used to nest multiple commands under one.

class lmi.scripts.common.command.multiplexer.LmiCommandMultiplexer(app, cmd_name, parent=None)

Base class for node commands. It consumes just part of command line arguments and passes the remainder to one of its subcommands.

Example usage:

class MyCommand(LmiCommandMultiplexer):
    My command description.

    Usage: %(cmd)s mycommand (subcmd1 | subcmd2)
    COMMANDS = {'subcmd1' : Subcmd1, 'subcmd2' : Subcmd2}

Where Subcmd1 and Subcmd2 are some other LmiBaseCommand subclasses. Documentation string must be parseable with docopt.

Recognized properties:

COMMANDS : dictionary

Using metaclass: meta.MultiplexerMetaClass.

classmethod child_commands()

Abstract class method, that needs to be implemented in subclass. This is done by associated meta-class, when defining a command with assigned COMMANDS property.

Returns:Dictionary of subcommand names with assigned command factories.
Return type:dictionary
classmethod fallback_command()

This is overriden by MultiplexerMetaClass when the FALLBACK_COMMAND gets processed.
