commander-version

npm typescript GitHub stars Twitter Follow

A wrapper for Commander that automatically sets the version based on your package.json.

Installation

yarn add commander-version
npm install commander-version

API

Default

Note: also capitalizes 'help' and 'version' descriptions by default.

To set the version, import program the same as you would for Commander, just pass __dirname:

import program from "commander-version";

program(__dirname)
  .name("my-program")
  .description("...")
  // ...
  .parse();

This creates a new Command rather than using the global Command, which can cause issues.

Flags and Description

You can also add flags or descriptions the same as with program.version():

Note: the default flags are set to "-v --version" to be inline with other programs, such as Node.js.

import program from "commander-version";

// To set flags back to the Commander default of "-V --version", for example:

program(__dirname, "-V --version", "custom version description")
  .name("my-program")
  .description("...")
  // ...
  .parse();

Types

For creating types, the Commander namespace can also be imported:

import { commander } from "commander-version";

type MyType = commander.Command;

Commander

For convenience, Commander and createCommand can also be used without setting the version:

import { commander, createCommand } from "commander-version";

new commander.Command("my-command")
  .description("...")
  // ...

const myCommand = createCommand("my-command")
  .description("...")
  // ...
