Passing boolean values as CLI arguments

See original GitHub issue

How can I pass a boolean value as a command line argument to copier? I’m doing it as given below: -d 'notification=False'

However, in the template, the following line does not detect notification as being False, but works when I compare it to the string False. [% if notification -%]

Not sure if this is a bug or I’m missing something.

I think you forgot to set type: bool to the notification question. Please reopen otherwise and provide your copier.yaml. Thanks!

Well, as long as the problem’s fixed, I wouldn’t worry much about that 😄

The use case of providing answers without declaring questions is always gonna produce some corner cases, as it’s not our main use case focus.
