ur - Command line tool to manage metadata within a namespace
ur define namespace MyApp ur describe MyApp::Some::Class ur update classes
ur is a command-line wrapper around the UR::Namespace::Command tree of modules. They manipulate, display and alter metadata within a namespace.
Like other UR::Command-based commands,
ur by itself doesn't do much. It functions as an entry point to the various sub-commands for displaying, changing and updating metadata. If insufficient arguments are given on the command line, or if
--help is on the command line, then the command will display some helpful documentation such as accepted command line args and available sub-commands.
All the modules implementing the sub-commands are locted under UR::Namespace::Command
These are the commands available at the top level.
