CLI framework using python

I need to develop a python CLI framework.

For example if i need to set an ip address in linux:

ifconfig eth0

I should be able to use python to do the above.

1. The user will execute a python script to which i will pass the params eth0 and ip address (something like  eth0

2. Within the script i grab the params and do something to the effect of user executing 'ifconfig eth0' from the shell.

3. There are other such commands for which i will be using python scripts. I came across pyCLI, but it doesn't have much documentation, so couldn't figure out how to move forward.

4. The CLI framework needs to reuse code so i didn't want to use pure python and develop a framework from scratch. Rather use something like pyCLI/CLIFF.

The problem is lack of documentation with examples on how to use the above.

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Regards & Thanks,
