I use a lot of CLI tools, but haven't written many for myself. Mostly, aliases/functions and some scripts in Bash/Python.

I wrote a Linux CLI tool  that parses the man/help pages to extract option details. Works most of the time for me, but there are plenty of corner cases that don't work.

https://github.com/learnbyexample/command_help is big enough to warrant a repo, examples, limitations, etc. I had a list of todo items to improve the script, but after years of usage, I'm fine with the limitations since I rarely encounter them. This helps me to extract documentation of particular options, here's an example:

I wrote one a few years back (https://github.com/learnbyexample/command_help). It has a few corner case issues, but works most of the time for me and supports multiple options to be retrieved.

When I start a project, I usually try to write the programs incrementally. Say I need to iterate over files from a directory. I will make sure that portion is working (usually with print() statements), then add another feature — say file reading and test that and so on. This reduces the burden of testing a large program at once at the end. And depending upon the nature of the program, I'll add a few sanity tests at the end. For example, for my command_help project, I copy pasted a few test runs of the program with different options and arguments into a separate file and wrote a program to perform these tests programmatically whenever the source code is modified.
