  • Building a Dot Matrix Animator

    I wanted to provide a command-line interface for the user that was easy to use, and I also wanted to provide the flexibility with the options used to render the animation. After looking around online I found that Thor was a good tool to utilize. It allowed me to easily create a number of options that make this program much more versatile.

  • Move over Rake, Thor is the new King

    I've used Thor a lot, but it's kind of terrible. It uses a custom non-POSIX-compliant option parser (ex: method_option :list, type: :array -> --list one two three, where as the POSIX way is --list one,two,three or --item one -- item two --item three) and will not error on unknown options or exit with -1 when not enough args are given. If you want a better CLI library, checkout dry-rb, command_kit, or cmdparse.
