generator-commander Build Status NPM version

A CLI generator for Yeoman.

This generator will create a Commander.js based command line application using yo with options to include autocmdr components.

Installation

Install Yeoman if you haven't done so already.

$ npm install -g yo

To install generator-commander:

$ npm install -g generator-commander

Usage

At the command-line, cd into an empty directory, run this command and initiate the app generator:

$ yo commander

This will generate files in the current working directory for a Commander.js based application.

To crate a commander.js command-component initiate the command generator:

$ yo commander:command <name>

This will create a new file in cmds/ directory of the current working directory. This file can be included in your application by adding

require('../cmds/<name>.js')(program);

to your application in the bin directory; or optionally install the autocmdr components for auto-loading cmds.

autocmdr and generator-commander

autocmdr and generator-commander are brothers. autcmdr is a command line tool for running commands (commands in a commander.js command-component) and a set of libraries for enhancing command line applications. generator-commander is a tool for scaffolding commander.js command-components and command line applications.

Calling autocmdr from a shell will load commands located in the current working directory's cmds/ folder. New commands can be added to any directory by invoking yo commander:command <name>. When running yo commander you are given the option of including autocmdr components in your application. See the autocmdr readme for a complete workflow and explanation of the available components.
