    Have you noticed the const argv = build.rig.getYargs().argv;? I spotted it in another of Sergei's articles, and immediately used it to replace Yargs.

    Perhaps you’re looking for something like yargs ? Another option that I haven’t liked as much is commander

    This is great if you know exactly which order arguments will be passed, but it isn't always the case. If you need more flexible access to arguments, you can use a package called yargs. Install it from your terminal with npm install yargs and update your bin.js file:

    First, I decided to migrate from Commander to Yargs in order to make the code clearer. And then I added some more tests for the e2e test to make sure that help option and version option are working as I expected. As I was running the tests, I found out there's some errors happening and needed to be fixed as soon as possible. So I created a separate branch to fix it. The problem involved resolve variable in promise because I accidentally added curly braces around them. As I progressed, I decided to clean up my code a little bit more so I moved from using sync functions to async functions in the produceFolder class.

    The objective was to add support for config files through the -c or --config flag. As both of us were using yargs to build the CLI, I could add a new argument by using the option() method:

    The first issue I created was to add support for the --lang/-l flag. This flag allows users to specify a custom language in the command line arguments. This language would be added to the lang attribute of the tag in the generated HTML files. If no language is specified, the default is 'en-CA'. I added this feature by using yargs, which I have used to handle all command line arguments. When generating the HTML from a template HTML file, I added the following line:

    When talking to Duke he suggest me to take a look at yargs npm which is an npm package that allow us to create an interactive command line tools which support build-in feature to help for parsing arguments in the command line.

    To complete this little project I used NodeJS and Yargs. Yargs is a Node library that allows to parse arguments to a command line interface. It was my first time using it and I found it pretty intuitive (I also like it's pirate theme!)

    The major issues are related to the main feature. At first, the tool was unable to process input that has spaces. She was using Yargs to parse the arguments, however, arguments are separated with space by default so if the input includes spaces, Yargs will parse only the first word into the option. I suggested that she looked into argv.input to find the solution. Another issue was that when a directory is specified as input, the tool would process all files inside regardless of the file type. When I looked at her code again, I could see that she was missing a check for file extension.

    We added the type: module field to our package.json, to indicate that by default files with a .js extension should be considered to be ECMAScript modules (this is a workaround for the fact that TypeScript does not currently support the .mjs extension, and should be avoided if not using TypeScript, or once the issue is resolved).
