Clavinet is a command line argument parser with it's own language rules. It joins the given process.argv into a string and then parses it with it's own language grammar.


Clavinet has these concepts:

  • Commands — Commands start with double dashes as --some-command-name and they can have a value after them separated by spaces like: --say hello, or --add [2, 3, 5]
  • Values — Values are Literals or Arrays
  • Array — Array is made of a sequence of Values separated by , and inside of square bracket. For example: [1, 2, 4, hello, [1, 3]]
  • Literals — Literals are numbers and words in this format: [a-zA-Z0-9_\./][a-zA-Z0-9_\.\-/]*


You need to run npm install to install all the dependencies and you must have TypeScript installed on your system. After that you can build the package using

npm run build

const clavinet = require('clavinet')
