Acid JS - CLI 💻

CircleCI npm (scoped) License: MIT

Create command line tools using a simple yargs wrapper.

Very little setup.

A lot out of the box.

Install

$ npm install -g @acidjs/cli

Usage

Note: A folder named .acid should exist in your projects main direcotry. When you do, you can configure the cli, and start creating your options and commands.

Create a command:

Create a .js file in a directory named .acid/tasks (you can configure this path), then inside the file, export an array with 4 entries:

  1. Command (string)
  2. Description (string)
  3. Builder (function)
  4. Handler (function)
module.exports = [
    'hello [name]',
    'An example command',
    (yargs) => {}, 
    (argv) => {
        if(argv.name) console.log(`Hey ${argv.name}!`)
    }
]

In the command line: alt text

All the files that live within path.resolve('.acid', config.cli.entry.x) will be registered to yargs. For example, this is what actually gets called upon each valid command (file):

yargs.command(
  ...require(
    path.resolve(
      '.acid', 
      config.cli.entry.command, 
      file
    )
  )
)

Configure

To overwrite defaults, create .acid/config.yml in the root directory of your project. If there is a mistake in your config file, you will be notified.

Defaults:

cli:
  help: true
  color: magenta
  logErrors: true
  entry:
    commands: tasks
    options: tasks/options
