    Atocha npm install atocha

    Run a command in your terminal. Tiny exec() with promises and trim() for Node.js:

    import cmd from 'atocha';
     
    (async () => {
      // Any basic command will work
      console.log(await cmd('ls'));
     
      // Using a better Promise interface, see the lib `swear`
      console.log(await cmd('ls').split('\n'));
     
      // Can pipe commands as normal
      console.log(await cmd('sort record.txt | uniq'));
    })();

    Terminal Atocha; Madrid's train station.

    Better exec()

    • Automatic .trim() so you don't have to do it manually.
    • Higher max buffer. 10 MB instead of 200 KB.
    • Await/Async Promise interface works as you know and love.
    • Better error handling. stderr will reject the promise with an error instance. Can be caught as normal with .catch() or try {} catch (error) {}.
    • Advanced Promise interface so you can concatenate operations easily.
    • Full commands, commands with piping, etc. Note: Do not pass unsanitized input since there's no filtering going on. See execa for that.
