flatiron-cli-config

Encapsulated commands for managing configuration in flatiron CLI apps

Example

At its core flatiron-cli-config is a broadway-compatible plugin which can be used by any flatiron application:

  var flatiron = require('flatiron'),
      app = flatiron.app;

  //
  // Configure the Application to be a CLI app with
  // a JSON configuration file `test-config.json`
  //
  app.name = 'app.js';
  app.config.file({ file: 'test-config.json' });
  app.use(flatiron.plugins.cli, {
    usage: 'A simple CLI app using flatiron-cli-config'
  });

  //
  // Expose CLI commands using `flatiron-cli-config`
  //
  app.use(require('flatiron-cli-config'));

  if (!module.parent) {
    //
    // Start the application
    //
    app.start();
  }

If you run the above script:

  $ node app.js config set foo bar
  $ node app.js config get foo

The output will be:

  data: foo bar

And the contents of test-config.json will be:

  { "foo": "bar" }
