Maybe it's just me but STRING suggests a string of options, i.e. #807. I would expect something like --config PATH to refer to a path.

The other options taking arguments are similarly confusing:

-v, --version BOOLEAN display package version

This is the first time I see a version option taking an argument. What the argument means is not documented.

  --reporter STRING  custom reporter

I have not read enough of documentation to know what this option does but similarly to --config PATH you could maybe rename the parameter to something that would indicate what values it could take? Is it a class name/path to a file/something else? (I am unable to find anything useful searching google for "jshint reporter".)

It appears that master does not have boolean argument for version.

This is how the cli module we use works. I will update the description to make it more clear.
