Looking throught the issues it does appear like the maintainer wants to keep things as simple as possible. Doesn't look too eager to change things. Anyway, is still a good project.

You know I just remembered something: one can actually install this tool directly from github. So, people could fork this project, tweak a little bit and then install the fork like this.

npm install --global github:<some-user-name>/zx
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

That would be an interesting use of this npm install feature.

Oh, that's a really good idea. Especially since the work required would be minimal, for example using minimist for arguments would imply adding a few lines for importing the package and exposing it within the scope of zx.
