You've found a work in progress.

I'm looking for help adding exercises, all pull requests considered. Some ideas for future exercises:

Pithy name Description
OPTION_ME Create options with short flags (-o) and long names ('--option'), should be easy
FEEL_THE_COERCION Pull a variable from an option
EXPRESSION_REGULAR Use regex to make sure option variables fit an expected form
VARIADIC_ARGUMENTS (Name not pithy enough) The last argument can be variadic
COMDER_COMMANDS Git-style sub-commands
COMMAND_ACTION Register a callback function for a command

Comder menu

  1. Install Node.js
  2. Run npm install comder -g
  3. Run comder

comder will run through a series of Node.js workshops. Starting at a basic basic concept palceholder and moving on to list of concepts placeholder.
