end

#argument(name, options = {}) ⇒ Object

Adds an argument to the class and creates an attr_accessor for it.

Arguments are different from options in several aspects. The first one is how they are parsed from the command line, arguments are retrieved from position:

thor command NAME

Instead of:

thor command --name=NAME

Besides, arguments are used inside your code as an accessor (self.argument), while options are all kept in a hash (self.options).

Finally, arguments cannot have type :default or :boolean but can be optional (supplying :optional => :true or :required => false), although you cannot have a required argument after a non-required argument. If you try it, an error is raised.

Parameters

name<Symbol>

The name of the argument.

options<Hash>

Described below.

Options

:desc - Description for the argument. :required - If the argument is required or not. :optional - If the argument is optional or not. :type - The type of the argument, can be :string, :hash, :array, :numeric. :default - Default value for this argument. It cannot be required and have default values. :banner - String to show on usage notes.

Errors

ArgumentError

Raised if you supply a required argument after a non required one.

#class_option(name, options = {}) ⇒ Object

Adds an option to the set of class options

Parameters

name<Symbol>

The name of the argument.

options<Hash>

Described below.

Options

:desc

– Description for the argument.

:required

– If the argument is required or not.

:default

– Default value for this argument.

:group

– The group for this options. Use by class options to output options in different levels.

:aliases

– Aliases for this option. Note: Thor follows a convention of one-dash-one-letter options. Thus aliases like “-something” wouldn't be parsed; use either “--something” or “-s” instead.

:type

– The type of the argument, can be :string, :hash, :array, :numeric or :boolean.

:banner

– String to show on usage notes.

:hide

– If you want to hide this option from the help.

#class_options(options = nil) ⇒ Object

Adds a bunch of options to the set of class options.

class_options :foo => false, :bar => :required, :baz => :string

If you prefer more detailed declaration, check class_option.

Returns

#group(name = nil) ⇒ Object

Defines the group. This is used when thor list is invoked so you can specify that only commands from a pre-defined group will be shown. Defaults to standard.

end

#namespace(name = nil) ⇒ Object

Sets the namespace for the Thor or Thor::Group class. By default the namespace is retrieved from the class name. If your Thor class is named Scripts::MyScript, the help method, for example, will be called as:

thor scripts:my_script -h

If you change the namespace:

namespace :my_scripts

You change how your commands are invoked:

thor my_scripts -h

Finally, if you change your namespace to default:

namespace :default

Your commands can be invoked with a shortcut. Instead of:

thor :my_command

#no_commandsObject Also known as: no_tasks

All methods defined inside the given block are not added as commands.

So you can do:

class MyScript < Thor
  no_commands do
    def this_is_not_a_command
    end
  end
end

You can also add the method and remove it from the command list:

class MyScript < Thor
  def this_is_not_a_command
  end
  remove_command :this_is_not_a_command
end

#remove_command(*names) ⇒ Object Also known as: remove_task

Removes a given command from this Thor class. This is usually done if you are inheriting from another class and don't want it to be available anymore.

By default it only remove the mapping to the command. But you can supply :undefine => true to undefine the method from the class as well.

Parameters

name<Symbol|String>

The name of the command to be removed

options<Hash>

You can give :undefine => true if you want commands the method to be undefined from the class as well.

#start(given_args = ARGV, config = {}) ⇒ Object

Parses the command and options from the given args, instantiate the class and invoke the command. This method is used when the arguments must be parsed from an array. If you are inside Ruby and want to use a Thor class, you can simply initialize it:

script = MyScript.new(args, options, config)
script.invoke(:command, first_arg, second_arg, third_arg)

  exit(0)
end

#stop_on_unknown_option?(command_name) ⇒ Boolean

If true, option parsing is suspended as soon as an unknown option or a regular argument is encountered. All remaining arguments are passed to the command as regular arguments.
