EINVALIDTAGNAME with custom CMake options

See original GitHub issue

I am trying to give a custom CMake option using the npm command npm install -- --CDMyCustomLib_DIR:PATH=directory

  "scripts": {
    "install": "cmake-js compile"

I got this error:

npm ERR! Invalid tag name "--CDMyCustomLib_DIR:PATH=directory": Tags may not have any characters that encodeURIComponent encodes.

Any idea how to solve this? Thanks for your help!

As far I know yes, you should. But you can use environment variables or npm config values to configure you build process.

Because on the time of development CMake was case insensitive. It would be a breaking change to address it. It might worth the effort and a semver major release, but you should open up an issue about it, when we can discuss more.
