Args

The most minimalistic parameter processor for node. Really.

Usage

Couldn't be simpler, just install it like:

npm install node-args

And use it as:

var args = require('node-args');

You're done.

No other options needed. If you need more features, use commander or whatever else you fancy.

Call node with

  • your named parameters prefixed with --
  • your shorthand parameters prefixed with - (with multiple parameters in mind like -ab = -a -b)
  • your parameters and assigned values separated with a space or an equals sign
node my.js -t -ab=2 -c false -p no some additional data 2 --argsis awesome --another=1

So you will get:

{
    _: ['node', node file path],
    additional: ['some', 'additional', 'data', 2],
    t: true,
    a: 2,
    b: 2,
    c: false,
    p: 'no',
    argsis: 'awesome',
    another: 1
};

Yay.

Side note: It's build upon TypeScript and tested thoroughly.

Build

The source files are in the src folder, and the available scripts are

  • npm run build:src to build without tests
  • npm run build:tests to build with tests
  • npm test to run tests

Please do contribute if you find a better, faster or easier way to process arguments.
