install

$ npm install spawn-args

usage

var spawnargs = require('spawn-args');
//spawnargs(argString:string[, options:object]);
 
var args = spawnargs('-port 80 --title "this is a title"');
 
/*
 
    [
        '-port',
        '80',
        '--title',
        '"this is a title"'
    ]
    
*/

The removequotes option will remove quotes from values if they do not have spaces

var args2 = spawnargs('-port 80 --color "red" --title "this is a title"', { removequotes: true });
 
/*
 
    [
        '-port',
        '80',
        '--title',
        '"this is a title"'
    ]
    
*/

If removequotes is always then quotes will be removed even if the value contains spaces

var args3 = spawnargs('-port 80 --color "red" --title "this is a title"', { removequotes: 'always' });
 
/*
 
    [
        '-port',
        '80',
        '--title',
        'this is a title'
    ]
    
*/
