A @pika/pack build plugin. Adds a simple CLI wrapper to your package and properly configures your package.json "bin" field to point to it. Useful for quickly adding a command line interface to your library.


# npm:
npm install @pika/plugin-simple-bin --save-dev
# yarn:
yarn add @pika/plugin-simple-bin --dev


  "name": "example-package-json",
  "version": "1.0.0",
  "@pika/pack": {
    "pipeline": [
      ["@pika/plugin-simple-bin", {"bin": "my-cli"}]

For more information about @pika/pack & help getting started, check out the main project repo.


  1. Adds a simple bin/CLI wrapper to your built package: dist-node/index.bin.js
  2. Built for Node.js
  3. Loads your library, and calls an exported run() method with the CLI args.
  4. Will load a bundled Node.js distribution if one exists.
  5. Configures the built package.json with a new "bin" entrypoint, so that npm knows to install your package as a CLI.
