Plugin that post-processes the object returned from yargs-parser so that values can be passed over to base-cli


Install with npm:
$ npm install base-argv --save


Use as a plugin with base.
var Base = require('base');
var argv = require('base-argv');

var app = new Base();

// parse argv
var args = app.argv(['foo', 'bar', '--set=a:b']);

Results in:
{ set: { a: 'b' }, tasks: [ 'foo', 'bar' ] }

This object can then be passed to something else for further processing.
