A Node.js module for executing unix command line script


npm install unix-cmd


This Node.js module has been created for a comfort using of unix command line. This module works with base modules of Node.

Here is an example on how to use direct command line :

bash = require('unix-cmd');
bash.commandLine("echo 'Hello World !' ");

In this example, commandLine function requires only one parameter, the unix command. If the command is wrong, the script displays the error.

This module provides means of executing file of commands.

bash = require('unix-cmd');

with test1 :

mkdir toto
touch toto/example
ls toto

In this second example, commandFile function requires the file's path.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
