Passing Arguments To A Rake Task

You can create a rake task that takes arguments by including an array of named arguments in the task declaration.

task :greeting, [:name] do |task, args|
  puts "Hello, #{}!"

You can then pass an argument to that task when invoking it.

$ rake greeting[World]
Hello, World!
