When creating a Python toolbox, the template below is used to form the toolbox. This code creates a Python toolbox with a toolbox class named Toolbox, and a single tool named Tool. The Tool class should be renamed, and can be duplicated and edited to create additional tools in your Python toolbox.
Alternatively, the following code could be copied and pasted into a new .pyt file:
# -*- coding: utf-8 -*- import arcpy class Toolbox(object): def __init__(self): """Define the toolbox (the name of the toolbox is the name of the .pyt file).""" self.label = "Toolbox" self.alias = "" # List of tool classes associated with this toolbox self.tools = [Tool] class Tool(object): def __init__(self): """Define the tool (tool name is the name of the class).""" self.label = "Tool" self.description = "" self.canRunInBackground = False def getParameterInfo(self): """Define parameter definitions""" params = None return params def isLicensed(self): """Set whether tool is licensed to execute.""" return True def updateParameters(self, parameters): """Modify the values and properties of parameters before internal validation is performed. This method is called whenever a parameter has been changed.""" return def updateMessages(self, parameters): """Modify the messages created by internal validation for each tool parameter. This method is called after internal validation.""" return def execute(self, parameters, messages): """The source code of the tool.""" return def postExecute(self, parameters): """This method takes place after outputs are outputs are processed and added to the display.""" return
