Shadow Quack Args

This package allows the easy population of values directly from a parameters (string[] args) array to a dynamically implemented immutable interface with the help of the base Shadow Quack package.

This means that there is almost no effort in adding additional command line parameters, it's as simple as just adding an additional get-only property to the interface.

using System.Runtime.CompilerServices;
using Shadow.Quack;
using Shadow.Quack.Args;

namespace ExampleArgsApp
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            var config = Duck.Implement<IConfig>((ArgsProxy) args);
                    ? Sugar.GetUsageInfo<IConfig>() 
                    : config.ToArgs());

    public interface IConfig
        bool Flag { get; }
        string FileName { get; }
        int Port { get; }
        string SourceUrl { get; }

a simple way to get usage information is to use Sugar.GetUsageInfo<T>() in the example above the output is below


and if you want to reflect the parameters input back to the console or store them in a log-file you can use the .ToArgs() extension method using the above example like this ...

.\exampleArgsApp /flag /filename:"c:" /port:443 /sourceurl:""`

gives this output

Added some Sugar :)


Retuns a simple usage information string based on the interface (T) provided

Sugar.ToArgs<T>(this T value)

Provides the same information but uses the values in value to populate the parameters
