   * Constructor of the comand.
  constructor() {
    super("validate", "Validate application configuration file");
    // specify comand arguments with description and validator
    this._argument("<file>", "application.json file path", /^(.*)[\\/]application.json$/);

    // specify command options

      "Outputs the result in json format.",
      "Outputs the result in string file format.",

   * @param {Object} options The options of the command.

  async run(args, options, logger) {

    // add in here the command action


Use CLIManager class to register defined commands, parse and run input commands.

const CLIManager = require("cli-base");
const application = require("../package.json");
const SampleCommand = require("./commands/SampleCommand");

const cliManager = new CLIManager(application.version, application.description);
// register SampleCommand
cliManager.registerCommand(new SampleCommand());
