    @xutl/cmd

    One eXtremely Useful Tool Library to facilitate writing CLI programs that need argument parsing.

    Install

    npm install --save @xutl/args

    Usage

    import { parse, flag } from '@xutl/args';
    const args = parse(process.argv, flag('version'));

    For parameters that take a value (i.e. everything but flags) the valid formats are:

    • prog --name=value
    • prog --name value
    • prog -n value

    API

    triggers are required to be in the format /^(-\w|--\w{2,99})$/.

    If no triggers are provided, the default is to use the first letter of the name prefixed by - as well as the full name prefixed by -- if the name is longer than a single character.

    flag('version') is equal to flag('version', undefined, '-v', '--version')
