This is the story of a man who just wanted to write a nice CLI using GLI based on the nice tutorials in Build Awesome Command-Line Applications in Ruby 2 Control Your Computer, Simplify Your Life by David Copeland I wish he had written the book for Windows users and not Mac and Linux, but I’m just going to have to get over that.
I actually made it a significant way through the book with minimal problems. At one point I did have to open a gem called groff and change some stuff, but I won’t know if my changes worked until I do a little more tinkering. My major problem came when I encountered the chapter on Cucumber testing. Oh boy! Something I am extremely experienced in! Oh Aruba? I’ve heard of that before. Ah it’s for command-line testing of applications using Cucumber? Ah ok, that sounds really usefull. He says it doesn’t work very well on Windows? Nonsense, Googling leads me to believe that no one has problems with it ever!
