Information

Packageargus
Description Complex CLI argument parser
Node Version >= 0.4

Details

Argus allows you to pass an array of complex data to your application through a CLI. This can be an array of objects, strings, numbers, you name it. Anything valid JSON array can be used.

Usage

# You can pass an array of JSON values
mycli dostuff["johnny boy",true,-1] # {"dostuff":["johnny boy",true,-1]}

# You can set it to a single JSON value
mycli dostuff=true # {"dostuff":true} 

# You can mix single and multi-value commands
mycli dostuff=true:otherstuff[true,2.05,"test"] # {"dostuff":true, "otherstuff":[true,2.05,"test"]}

# Non-JSON arguments used with = will be turned into strings
mycli dostuff=testlol # {"dostuff":"testlol"}

Quirks

Bash doesn't agree with a lot of JSON characters so some escaping may be required. Still looking for a solution to this.
