LLAMS36345yIt kinda depends who will be using it. We have internal tools to help with testing, and they have a GUI so even our product specialists who are mostly non-technical can pick them up and create their own test data and so on. If you give it a GUI you can potentially open up its capabilities to more than just developers. Sounds like hes just being a little big headed like "look at me i use command line for everything"
Rabb6855yTechnically he could have had both a GUI and a command line if he shared the core domain logic.
Command lines are still good in 2017, they are useful when you want to automate.
ste0911195yWe can agree on the speed and scriptability (is that a real word ?) of a command line tool, but please don't even try to sell me the idea that a console data visualization is better then some kind of GUI, unless you just hit 88 mph with your DeLorean and jumped to our times from the 80s.
