This Pull Request updates dependency meow (source) from ^3.7.0 to ^5.0.0

Release Notes


Compare Source

  • Drops support for Node.js 4
  • Switches the argument parser from minimist, which is no longer maintained, to yargs-parser. It should be fully compatible, but let us know if something breaks.
  • Add booleanDefault option. 09f7ef0

Meow 4 is finally out


  • Requires Node.js 4 or higher.
  • Changed how minimist options are specified. (See more below) 43401c3 554119b
  • Disabled type inference by default. It can lead to some surprising behavior. Can be enabled again with the inferType option. 1662881
  • Removed support for using an array in the help option. Just use a template literal. c80321d
  • Removed support for the pkg option accepting a string. 2d4d890
  • Removed support for setting the help and version options to false. Instead, use the new autoHelp and autoVersion options. 59dda7a
  • Uses exit code 2 when manually calling cli.showHelp() now. 6a32bbc

Changed how minimist options are specified

In Meow v3 you specified minimist options top-level just like documented in the minimist readme. Now you specify them in a flags option, grouped by flag name instead of option type.

const cli = meow(
        Help text
        boolean: [
        string: [
        alias: {
            u: 'unicorn'
        default: {
            foobar: 'foo'
const cli = meow(
        Help text
    flags: {
        unicorn: {
            type: 'boolean',
            alias: 'u'
        fooBar: {
            type: 'string',
            default: 'foo'

I would strongly recommend specifying the type property whenever possible to reduce CLI argument parsing ambiguity.
