clipr v1.6.0.1 Release Notes

Release Date: 2017-07-13 // almost 7 years ago
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fix a bug in parsing consecutive Optional values.
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fix minor resx issues.

    2017-01-02 1.6.0

    • โž• Add ability to mask password.
    • โž• Add "optional" value constraint for reference or nullable types.
    • โž• Add section in help generation for required named arguments.
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed bug in .Net Core localization resource name.

    2016-08-28 1.5.1

    • ๐Ÿ“œ Rework fluent parser into separate ParserBuilder class. Now all "configuration" happens there and a parser is built from the resulting config.
    • Further strengthen the separation between "config", which defines the argument configuration properties, and "context", which orchestrates the parsing state machine. Allows the parser to be (more) threadsafe -- no guarantees that it's truly threadsafe right now.
    • โž• Add new Parser Option that allows partial (prefix) matching on long named arguments, so long as the name is unambiguous. For example, with an argument named "checkout" you could use "--check" so long as there isn't another conflicting argument name (such as "checkin").
    • ๐Ÿ”ง Simplified AutomatedHelpGenerator, exposing the parser's configuration object so that you can generate help messages on-demand.
    • Ported code to .NET Core. I saw a bunch of weird bugs where the code would compile but fail at runtime with a MissingMethodException, so there may still be issues in there.
    • โž• Add the ability to translate help information from Resource files (#26).
    • Scale width of help screen to the terminal size (#29)

    2015-04-24 1.4.7

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fix bug in sample where negative numbers in varargs parsing ๐Ÿ“œ (like a List<>) would prematurely terminate the parser.

    2015-03-28 1.4.6

    • ๐Ÿ˜Œ Relax restrictions preventing NumArgs=0 when it's the lower bound (NumArgsConstraint.AtLeast). It is still disallowed for the exact count and the upper bound.

    2014-08-21 1.4.5

    • ๐Ÿ‘€ Implement static enumeration parsing (see below)

    2014-08-15 1.4.4

    • Implement required named arguments (via property)

    2014-07-30 1.4.1

    • Implemented ability to assign TypeConverters on a per-property basis to allow overriding built-in types.
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fix bug when serializing to Lists.
    • Set Constraint to accept 1+ parameters when action is Append or AppendConst.

    2013-09-04 1.4.0

    • โž• Added Dictionary Backend

    2013-09-01 1.3.0

    • Fleshed out Fluent interface.
    • Reorganized imports so attributes are part of the base clipr namsepace.
    • โž• Added support for Verbs (sub-options).

    2013-06-07 1.2.0

    • โž• Added alternative Fluent interface for defining commands
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed bug where varargs parameters would consume arguments that start with -.


    • โž• Added TryParse method
    • ๐Ÿ“œ Renamed ParseStrict to StrictParse (for consistency's sake)
    • ๐Ÿ“œ Reordered any public parse methods where T object came first (also to retain consistency across the public API).


    • ๐ŸŽ‰ Initial release with automated help generation.
