basex-script Build Status

BaseX command scripts for nodejs

Getting Started

Install the module with: npm install basex-script

var basex-script = require('basex-script');
basex-script.awesome(); // "awesome" 


A convenience object that generates BaseX Command Scripts.

All BaseXScript methods except BaseXScript.render() are chainable.

script.command(name, input, params), script.command(name, params)

name: the tagname of the command (drop-db)

Appends a command to the script.

All command name, input, and params are validated and relevant errors are thrown.

script.requires(module1, module2, ..., moduleN)

Adds a REPO INSTALL <file> command for each argument.

script.bind(key, value), job.bind(bindings)

Binds parameters for XQuery external variables.

These bindings are collected and prepended to the command script before all other commands upon rendering.


Appends an EXECUTE command. If command can be a BaseXScript instance.


Appends an XQUERY command.

script.import(files, path, options), job.import(files), job.import(files, options)

Imports files.

In order to specify parsing options for the files without affecting global options, it appends an EXECUTE command that executes a child Command Script. Options that can be set are:


Specify the database to add files to. If not set the currently opened database will be used. If no db is currently open or the specified database does not exist the script will fail upon execution.

options.{createfilter, addarchives, skipcorrupt, addraw, parser, parseropt, htmlopt}

See Parsing Options
