package cli

import "github.com/urfave/cli"

Package cli provides a minimal framework for creating and organizing command line Go applications. cli is designed to be easy to understand and write, the most simple cli application can be written as follows:

func main() {
  cli.NewApp().Run(os.Args)
}

Of course this application does not do much, so let's make this an actual application:

func main() {
  app := cli.NewApp()
  app.Name = "greet"
  app.Usage = "say a greeting"
  app.Action = func(c *cli.Context) error {
    println("Greetings")
    return nil
  }

  app.Run(os.Args)
}

Variables

var AppHelpTemplate = "" /* 974 byte string literal not displayed */

AppHelpTemplate is the text template for the Default help topic. cli.go uses text/template to render templates. You can render custom help text by setting this variable.

var CommandHelpTemplate = "" /* 406 byte string literal not displayed */

CommandHelpTemplate is the text template for the command help topic. cli.go uses text/template to render templates. You can render custom help text by setting this variable.

var ErrWriter io.Writer = os.Stderr

ErrWriter is used to write errors to the user. This can be anything implementing the io.Writer interface and defaults to os.Stderr.

var HelpPrinter helpPrinter = printHelp

HelpPrinter is a function that writes the help output. If not set a default is used. The function signature is: func(w io.Writer, templ string, data interface{})

var HelpPrinterCustom helpPrinterCustom = printHelpCustom

HelpPrinterCustom is same as HelpPrinter but takes a custom function for template function map.

var OsExiter = os.Exit

OsExiter is the function used when the app exits. If not set defaults to os.Exit.

var SubcommandHelpTemplate = "" /* 509 byte string literal not displayed */

SubcommandHelpTemplate is the text template for the subcommand help topic. cli.go uses text/template to render templates. You can render custom help text by setting this variable.
