Custom commands

Before you begin, you may want to take a look at src/commands/index.js for all the built-in commands and how they are implemented.

A command is a JavaScript function that takes 2 parameters, namely args and self.

A typical command will look like this:

const clearThenSayHello = (args, self) => {
  self.setState({ visibles: [] });
  return `Hello ${args.targets[0]}`;
};

const commads = { 'clear-hello': clearThenSayHello };

// then we pass commands as a prop to the Terminal component

args

An object consists of three fields: targets, flags and fulls.

When clear-hello -b -dc --all myDir yourDir is entered, the Rebash argument parser will produce the following object and pass it to the command function as args.

{
  targets: ['myDir', 'yourDir'],
  flags: ['b', 'c', 'd'],
  fulls: ['all'],
}

See src/utils/parseArgs.js for more information

self

You do not want to mess with self unless you want to mutate the internal state of Rebash. In fact, self is just a reference to the instance of the top level React Component. You can access the component state from self.state, mutate the state and trigger the component to rerender with self.setState, etc.

see src/Terminal.js for more information.

Print something out

To print out some text, you can either return a string, or throw an error. The clear-hello command shown above will print hello Lawrence if I type clear-hello lawrence.
