Easy Command-Line Parsing with Picocli
Picocli (https://picocli.info/) is a modern take on Java command-line parsing. It features:
- Annotations for direct option injection into member variables
- Automatic formatted help generation
- Easy one-liner usage in main()
Older command-line parsing libraries tend to be clunkier and have
fewer options. They leave you copying values manually and creating
your own help. Plus, picocli has tons of options, more than I can
ever imagine using.
Give picocli a try. I suspect, like me, you won't want to use anything else ever again.
