Etherpad CLI Client

Interact with Etherpad contents in real time from within Node and from your CLI.

IMPORTANT: Your Etherpad installation must be in loadTest mode for this client to work.

TLDR; Set loadTest to true in your Etherpad settings.json

We hope in the future to support full editor functionality but for how functionality is limited. Read the Etherpad Guide for how to enable load testing. https://github.com/ether/etherpad-lite/wiki/Load-Testing-Etherpad Want to fund some dev so this isn't required? Get at me.

});

pad.on("message", function(message){
  console.log("New message from Etherpad Server", message);
});

pad.on("disconnect", function(e){
  console.log("disconnected from pad", e);
  process.exit(code=0)
});

Stream Pad Text contents to CLI

var pad = etherpad.connect("http://127.0.0.1:9001/p/test");
pad.on("newContents", function(atext){
  console.log("\u001b[2J\u001b[0;0H");
  console.log("Test Pad Contents", "\n"+atext.text);
});

var etherpad = require("etherpad-cli-client");
var pad = etherpad.connect("http://127.0.0.1:9001/p/test");
