Node.js - readline-prompter

build status

Easily prompt the user with a series of questions.

Why?

I wanted a package that I could easily specify an array of words and then have it ask a series of questions. Now you can be a bit more productive.

Installation

npm install readline-prompter

Node Versions

There is an error with the test on Node v0.6. Not sure what's causing it.

Example

var rlp = require('readline-prompter');

var tokens = ['first name', 'last name', 'cats name'];
var def = {'first name': 'JP'};
var skip = {'cats name': 'petey'};


rlp(tokens, def, skip).end(function(results) {
    console.log(results);
});

The default for 'first name' is "JP" in this case. 'cats name' gets skipped. You would have to type in something for 'last name', it won't let you skip it.

Console:

first name: (JP)
last name:

Output:

{
    "first name": "JP",
    "last name": "Richardson",
    "cats name": "petey"
}
