Elixir offers great capabilities for the web, data processing or other kinds of long running daemon, no doubts. But I wonder why the cli space is so uncared or unloved? Or do I miss something?
I am pretty sure the most of us use cli tools on a daily base. But I did not find a lot of traces like libraries for or already available cli tools in Elixir.
OptionParser are already good starting points but I think this is not enough. And
Mix tasks are great only for the development of Elixir projects (from my point of view).
In addition, Elixir “apps” could be more easily distributed to “non-beam”-users since
relase was added to
Mix.install allows to build more sophisticated scripts which could use cli capabilities.
I would like to initiated and carrier the cli creation story but I wonder if I oversee something.
