Creator here, sharing some of that open-source goodness with the community. . . Project's been around for a few years, but only recently got a shiny new website at https://pypyr.io When you're writing your automation scripts in Python, you end up very frequently having to code & test the repetitive plumbing of sequencing tasks, parse & validate cli input arguments, parse config files, write output files, handling errors, retrying commands on error, running a group of commands in a loop, invoking the cli from python or invoking python from the cli. You can of course just code all of this stuff yourself in Python, but sometimes when you're automating something you want to get on with actually automating something, rather than deal with the more boring hardening & testing of variations of the basic flow control of your automation sequences. And that's why this task-runner exists - to make your automation easier. feedback welcome!
