Factory for creating regular expression types for argparse

DEPRECATED AFAIK – now things are in the config file, but we might provide a mode where we operate solely from cmdline

datalad.cmdline.helpers.get_repo_instance(path='.', class_=None)[source]

Returns an instance of appropriate datalad repository for path. Check whether a certain path is inside a known type of repository and returns an instance representing it. May also check for a certain type instead of detecting the type of repository.

Parameters: path (str) – path to check; default: current working directory class (class) – if given, check whether path is inside a repository, that can be represented as an instance of the passed class. RuntimeError, in case cwd is not inside a known repository.
