from MoinMoin.script import MoinScript

class PluginScript(MoinScript):
This tool allows you to create user accounts via a command line interface.

Detailed Instructions:
General syntax: moin [options] account create [create-options]

[options] usually should be:

[create-options] see below:
    0. Verify that the account does not exist.
       Currently this script does not check if the user exists.

    1. Verify that you have specified the right options.
       This script does no verification of email addresses or the like.

    2. To create a normal user 'JohnSmith' with an alias of 'JSmith' and an
       email of ''
       moin ... account create --name JohnSmith --alias JSmith --email

            help="Set the wiki user name to NAME."
            "--alias", metavar="ALIAS", dest="ualiasname",
            help="Set the wiki user alias name to ALIAS (e.g. the real name if NAME is cryptic)."
            "--email", metavar="EMAIL", dest="email",
            help="Set the user's email address to EMAIL."
            "--password", metavar="PASSWORD", dest="password",
            help="Set the user's password to PASSWORD (either cleartext or {SHA1}...)."

    def mainloop(self):
        # we don't expect non-option arguments
        if len(self.args) != 0:
            self.parser.error("incorrect number of arguments")
