}

Installation

$ npm install chat-arg-parser

How to use

const parseCommandInput = require('chat-arg-parser');
 
// command_input would be set by an event where a user sends a command,
// for example, this could be a Discord server chat message
 
var command_input = '!jail';
parseCommandInput('!', command_input);
// => {cmd: 'jail', args: []}
 
var command_input = '!jail "name with spaces" 10s';
parseCommandInput('!', command_input);
// => {cmd: 'jail', args: ['name with spaces', '10s']}
 
var command_input = "!jail 'name with spaces' 10s";
parseCommandInput('!', command_input);
// => {cmd: 'jail', args: ['name with spaces', '10s']}
 
var command_input = '!jail "name with "quotation" 10s';
parseCommandInput('!', command_input);
// => {cmd: 'jail', args: ['name with "quotation', '10s']}
