A(n eventually) POSIX-compliant shell in node.js
JavaScript Ruby
Branch: master

nsh - A shell in node.js

This is nsh, the node.js shell project. It is super-experimental, but actually kind of works!

Please use with caution.

Also, this project was committed to git from inside of a running session of itself.

Furthermore, I'm writing this readme from inside an nsh session!


Current Features:

  • Execution via backticks and $()
  • Pipes
  • Arbitrary command execution (args must currently be in quotes)
  • Arbitrary JS execution

    console.log(ifconfig -a);

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
