GitHub | NPM

Install

npm i gar

Use

gar usage demo

const args = require('gar')(process.argv.slice(2))

console.log(args)

So for: -h hey --toggle -ac --hey=hi -spaced "hey there" -num 1 lone

{
	"h": "hey",
	"toggle": true,
	"a": true,
	"c": true,
	"hey": "hi",
	"spaced": "hey there",
	"num": 1,
	"_": ["lone"]
}

Why use gar?

gar is way more lightweight than other argument parsing packages.
