trymodule colors lodash
Same as above but with many packages in one go!
trymodule colors=c lodash=l
Assign packages to custom variable names.
Removes the directory where trymodules stores the node modules. Removes
TRYMODULE_PATH + '/node_modules'
There are a couple of environment variables you can use to customize trymodule.
TRYMODULE_PATH for setting the path of where modules are stored. By default this is
TRYMODULE_NONINTERACTIVE for making trymodule not fire up the repl in the end. This is useful if you want to just install some packages for future use. By default this is undefined. Setting it to any value would make trymodule non-interactive.
TRYMODULE_HISTORY_PATH for changing where to save the repl history. Should be pointing to a user write-able file. Defaults to
You can set the environment variables for one session with
export TRYMODULE_PATH=/usr/bin/trymodule or for just one time by doing
TRYMOUDLE_PATH=/usr/bin/trymodule trymodule colors.
