Subject [jira] [Commented] (GROOVY-8592) Migrate command line tools to picocli version of CliBuilder
Date Sat, 26 May 2018 13:18:00 GMT


Paul King commented on GROOVY-8592:

I ended up having to revert (just on 2_5_X) some of the changes I was hoping to achieve to
totally remove the jarjar'd commons-cli classes but alas it is needed for the deprecated legacy
methods in FileSystemCompiler. Those methods actually used the jarjar cli classes - so it
kind of paints us into a corner. Anyway, it is totally removed from 2_6+ and shouldn't affect
any changes you wanted to do.

> The following command line tools use either {{groovy.cli.commons.CliBuilder}} or implicitly
use {{groovy.util.CliBuilder}} which delegates to the commons-cli version of CliBuilder:
> * groovyConsole (groovy.ui.Console)
> * groovydoc (
> * groovysh (
> This ticket proposes to use {{groovy.cli.picocli.CliBuilder}} instead, so that all command
line tools in the {{bin}} directory of the Groovy distribution show usage help in ANSI colors.
