A library to help in building Dart command-line apps.

In particular, cli_util provides a simple, standardized way to get the current SDK directory. Useful, especially, when building client applications that interact with the Dart SDK (such as the analyzer).

Build Status


import 'dart:io';

import 'package:cli_util/cli_util.dart';
import 'package:path/path.dart' as path;

main(args) {
  // Get sdk dir from cli_util
  Directory sdkDir = getSdkDir(args);
  // Do stuff... For example, print version string
  File versionFile = new File(path.join(sdkDir.path, 'version'));
