Run multiple iterations of the same command from a stored configuration.

I built this to help with building multiple packages using fpm. I had a set of commands where it was useful to share default and common arguments for each package, and the commands were complex enough that I wanted a configuration file describing them (and generic functions are painful in make). An example of using clack with fpm can be found in examples/fpm.json.

Usage

Create a configuration file:

{
    "default": {
        "command": "cowsay",
        "options": { "-f": "default" }
    },
    "iterations": [
        {
            "arguments": ["moo"]
        },
        {
            "arguments": ["baa"],
            "options": { "-f": "sheep" }
        }
    ]
}

Then run clack on the file:

clack examples/farm.json

And the result:

 _____
< moo >
 -----
        \   ^__^
         \  (oo)\_______
            (__)\       )\/\
                ||----w |
                ||     ||
 _____
< baa >
 -----
  \
   \
       __
      UooU\.'@@@@@@`.
      \__/(@@@@@@@@@@)
           (@@@@@@@@)
           `YY~~~~YY'
            ||    ||
