Parse command line arguments by defining a struct. It combines clap with custom derive.
The basic idea is that you define a type that represents the
information you want on the command-line from the person running your
derive(AutoArgs) on that type, and then call
YourType::from_args() to find out what your user gave you.
AutoArgs is essentially equivalent to ClapMe. It only differs in implementation, speed of compilation, help messages, and error messages.
StructOpt is a tool that serves the same
auto-args, but with a different philosophy. StructOpt
strives to be as expressive as clap, and to enable all features clap
does, and with a tightly coupled API. It does this by extensive use
of attributes such as
#[structopt(long = "long-name")], which define
the behavior and property of each flag. This makes it powerful, but
also rather verbose to use.
In contrast, AutoArgs does not (yet?) support any attributes, and determines all behavior directly from your type. This means that you don't repeat yourself, but also means that you have less fine-grained control over your interface, and some interfaces may be well-nigh impossible.
You can implement the
AutoArgs trait manually, which does make it
possible (and not even that painful) to create a different
command-line for a given type, but this is not the intended way to use
