light-weight option parsing library for NodeJS


Optimist is a light-weight node.js library for option parsing.

It is a library for people who hate option parsing. More specifically, this module is for people who like all the --bells and -whistlz of program usage but think optstrings are a waste of time.

With optimist, option parsing doesn't have to suck (as much).

Node.js is an event-based server-side JavaScript engine.
