HTML Tidy configuration not working

I'm trying to use HTML Tidy with Sublime Text 3, but I don't understand 
how it's supposed to be configured.

I ran a tidy -help-config command to get the list of available config 
options. Then, I tried to use them like this:

tidy index.html --uppercase-attributes yes
If I put invalid option there, I get an error, which is good. But if I 
put a correct option, like the one above, it feels like it's just 
ignored. The output is always the same and the warnings are the same as 
well.

I don't expect it to take config with Sublime Text if it doesn't even 
work from the console.

Example:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="fa">
<head>
     <meta charset="utf-8">
     <title>دیجیتال مارکتینگ</title>
</head>
<body>
     <input TYPE="text" name="foo">
</body>
</html>
As you can see, I have an input with one attribute lowercased and one 
attribute uppercased. No matter what I do with --uppercase-attributes 
option, the output is always:

Info: Document content looks like HTML5
No warnings or errors were found.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="fa">
<head>
<meta name="generator" content=
"دیجیتال مارکتینگ و بازاریابی دیجیتال">
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>HTML Tidy</title>
</head>
<body>
<input type="text" name="foo">
</body>
</html>
Regards and thanks for your help in Advance; Sincerely yours.

What am I doing wrong? I'm using HTML Tidy 5.6.0 on macOS High Sierra.
