Replify

Easily add a REPL to your Node.js app.

Status

Travis Build Status

Install

npm install replify

Usage

var replify = require('replify')
  , app = require('http').createServer()

replify('realtime-101', app)

Advanced options.

replify({ name: 'realtime-101', path: '/dshaw/repl' }, app, { 'other_context': io })

replify(options, app, [contexts])

options

name or options object.

  • name [String] - Name for the REPL domain socket. Default: replify. You are going to want to assign a value for this. Note: Due to the fact that Node no longer cleans up domain socket files behind itself, replify automatically paves over the existing file when it starts.
  • path [String] - Default: /tmp/repl. The REPL will be located at {path}/{name}{extension}.
  • extension [String] - Default: .sock.
  • logger [Object] - Default: console.
  • start [Function] - Default: require('repl').start. Useful for custom repls like replpad.
  • app [Object] - Alternative to using the app parameter.
  • contexts [Object] - Alternative to using the contexts parameter.

app

Primary context. Exposed as:

realtime-101> app

contexts

Additional contexts exposed under the name of the key.

replify('realtime-101', app, { 'io': io })

Connect to the REPL

NETCAT (nc)

$ nc -U /tmp/repl/realtime-101.sock

SOCAT

$ socat READLINE /tmp/repl/realtime-101.sock

repl-client (rc)

Node repl client with history scrollback and tab completion. Learn more about repl-client (rc). Install with npm install repl-client -g.

$ rc /tmp/repl/realtime-101.sock

Windows

Recommended to use repl-client. Note that Windows pipes don't live on disk, and the path to the socket is not quite the same as *nix environments.

$ rc \\.\pipe\tmp-repl\realtime-101.sock
