Ruby command-line interface library


"Commander" bridges the gap between other terminal related libraries you know and love (OptionParser, HighLine), while providing many new features, and an elegant API.

   * Easier than baking cookies
   * Parses options using OptionParser
   * Auto-populates struct with options:
     ( no more { |v| options[:recursive] = v } )
   * Auto-generates help documentation via pluggable help formatters
   * Optional default command when none is present
   * Global / Command level options
   * Packaged with two help formatters (Terminal, TerminalCompact)
   * Imports the highline gem for interacting with the terminal
   * Adds additional user interaction functionality
   * Highly customizable progress bar with intuitive, simple usage
   * Multi-word command name support
   * Sexy paging for long bodies of text
   * Command aliasing
   * Use the 'commander' executable to initialize a commander driven program
