console.dir(xs);

output

[ 'beep', '--boop=/home/robot' ]

parse with custom escape charcter

var xs = parse('beep > boop # > kaboom');
console.dir(xs);

[ 'beep', { op: '>' }, 'boop', { comment: '> kaboom' } ]

methods

var quote = require('shell-quote').quote;
var parse = require('shell-quote').parse;

quote(args)

Return a quoted string for the array args suitable for using in shell commands.

parse(cmd, env={})

Return an array of arguments from the quoted string cmd.

Interpolate embedded bash-style $VARNAME and ${VARNAME} variables with the env object which like bash will replace undefined variables with "".

env is usually an object but it can also be a function to perform lookups. When env(key) returns a string, its result will be output just like env[key] would. When env(key) returns an object, it will be inserted into the result array like the operator objects.

When a bash operator is encountered, the element in the array with be an object with an "op" key set to the operator string. For example:

'beep || boop > /byte'

parses as:

[ 'beep', { op: '||' }, 'boop', { op: '>' }, '/byte' ]

install

With npm do:

npm install shell-quote
