This release fixes many issues, and it also doesn't enable the
readlink -e functionality introduced in
2.8.0. So there is a slight breakage of backwards compatibility for those who use the standalone mode and who use symlinks.
Incompatible changes (minor):
DEFINE_SCRIPT_DIRmacro doesn't resolve symlinks as it started to do so in
DEFINE_SCRIPT_DIR_GNUif you need the functionality.
New features (minor):
- The help message now contains reference for one-of argument types (#76).
- Allow argbash and argbash-init to be run from symbolic links.
- Allow scripts generated by argbash-init with complete separation (
-s -s) to be run from a symbolic link.
- Implemented output to generate manpages using the
rst2manutility (fixes #37).
- Introduced the
This is a minor feature / bugfix release. The bash completion has seen some love, and the docopt output regression has been fixed.
- The bash completion now supports arguments of one-of-restricted values.
- Tests pass when there is no dash shell installed.
- The double-dash handling when
--is the last argument has been improved.
- The generated bash completion is now complementing (i.e. not shadowing) the default bash completion.
- Docopt fatal regression has been fixed.
- Tests were added for docopt output.
This version of Argbash brings the long-awaited POSIX shell output mode.
The generated code uses the
getopts builtin if applicable, and although it doesn't support all features of full Bash script output, the most common functionality works.
ARGBASH_WRAPworks recursively - you can wrap wrapped scripts.
- Introduced new output - the strict POSIX shell output.
- Fixed comment of the evaluate_strictness function in commented mode.
ARG_OPTIONAL_BOOLwon't let you specify other default values than
- Fixed bash completion containing a leading newline.
- Fixed Argbash bash completion generated filename.
- Initial support for bash completion.

- Initial support for
- Fixed wrapping of scripts with repeated optional arguments.
- All scripts + tests are checked by Shellcheck.
ARGBASH_WRAPmacro now supports looking for templates in subdirectories.
- Documentation expansion.
This is a bugfix release that will please advanced users of Argbash.
- Fixed argbash-init corner cases (wrong output filename).
- Corrected argbash-init hint mode.
- Allowed argbash to wrap scripts in files with no extension.
- Fixed compatibility with the
-e(i.e. "strict") mode (fixed #30).
- The generated shell
casestatement is considerably nicer.
- Support for having more Argbash versions simultainously (applies to Argbash version that implement the
- Argbash functionality is now encapsulated in shell functions.
- API macros have checks against wrong number of arguments supplied.
- Short options can be also numeric.
- Introduced DIY mode as a preview feature.
- A Docker image of argbash is available on Docker hub. Thanks to Peter Cummuskey!
- Improved feedback when users provide invalid input (fixed #8, #9).
- The underlying code has been cleaned and distributed into multiple files.
m4_list_indicesto be consistent with
- Much-improved handling of typed arguments (fixed #25, #26).
- Improved documentation. Thanks to Bianca Tamayo!
The main highlight of this version of
argbash is the
getopts feature parity - the generated code is supposed to support all features of
getopts related to short options.
- Implemented getopts-like behavior (so e.g.
-g -I includeetc.).
- Improved feedback in case of mismatch between expected / received arguments.
- Argbash-powered scripts with positional arguments can be sourced consecutively without having to manually perform variable reset.
- Fixed issue #7 with newlines in help strings.
argbash.specfile has been corrected, so there is a hope that Argbash will make it to Fedora Linux distribution.
