commist

Build command line application with multiple commands the easy way. To be used with minimist.

var program = require('commist')()
  , minimist = require('minimist')
  , result
 
result = program
  .register('abcd', function(args) {
    console.log('just do', args)
  })
  .register('args', function(args) {
    args = minimist(args)
    console.log('just do', args)
  })
  .register('abcde code', function(args) {
    console.log('doing something', args)
  })
  .register('another command', function(args) {
    console.log('anothering', args)
  })
  .parse(process.argv.splice(2))
 
if (result) {
  console.log('no command called, args', result)
}

When calling commist programs, you can abbreviate down to three char words. In the above example, these are valid commands:

node example.js abc
node example.js abc cod
node example.js anot comm

Moreover, little spelling mistakes are corrected too:

node example.js abcs cod
