My starter template for creating scripts with lots of parameters that also prompt you to fill out the missing parameters
#!/usr/bin/env ruby
# Why not bash?
# bash is annoying for opts handling
# AND especially annoying if those opts need to be in both --key value AND --key=value format
# AND not DRY.
# and Ruby is pretty close to bash in syntax. Or it's close to Perl, which is close to Bash
# and Python feels like a bunch of boilerplate here

Ever wanted to just give someone a single .js file, but also wanted to pull in a Node module? Fret no more!
#!/usr/bin/env node
Node script are kind of cool, but they are hard to low-tech write a Node script for someone and give it to them.

const process = require("process")
const superagent = require('superagent')
