sfdx-prebuilt

An NPM installer for SFDX, API interface for Force.com and all Salesforce DX features.

Build Status

Building and Installing

npm install sfdx-prebuilt

Or grab the source and

node ./install.js

What this installer is really doing is just grabbing a particular "blessed" (by this module) version of SFDX. As new versions of SFDX are released and vetted, this module will be updated accordingly.

Running via node

The package exports a path string that contains the path to the SFDX binary/executable.

Below is an example of using this package via node.

var path = require('path')
var childProcess = require('child_process')
var sfdx = require('sfdx-prebuilt')
var binPath = sfdx.path

var childArgs = [
  'force',
  '--help' 
]

childProcess.execFile(binPath, childArgs, function(err, stdout, stderr) {
  // handle results
})

Or exec() method is also provided for convenience:

var sfdx = require('sfdx-prebuilt')
var program = sfdx.exec('force', '--help')
program.stdout.pipe(process.stdout)
program.stderr.pipe(process.stderr)
program.on('exit', function(code) {
  // do something on end
})

Note: childProcess.spawn() is called inside exec().

Versioning

The major and minor number tracks the version of SFDX that will be installed. The patch number is incremented when there is either an installer update or a patch build of the sfdx binary.
