tmpin Build Status

Add stdin support to any CLI app that accepts file input

It pipes stdin to a temp file and spawns the chosen app with the temp file path as the first argument.

Similar to process substitution in ZSH/Bash, but cross-platform and without its limitation.

Install

$ npm install --global tmpin

Usage

$ tmpin --help

  Usage
    echo <string> | tmpin <app> [<args>]

  Example
    git diff | tmpin atom

  Note that the first argument to <app> will be set to the temp file

Tip

Create an alias in your .zshrc/.bashrc:

alias atom='tmpin atom'

# Or more specific
alias gda='git diff | tmpin atom'
