    Create Bulk File

    demo gif


    If you ever tired of creating folder/files again and again while developing node application. Then this tool for you. Simply init your file first time and create folder using cli. It's that easy


    The easiest way to use Create bulk files is to install it globally as a Node command line program. Run the following command in Terminal:

    Try without installing

    npx create-bulk-file test-folder
    npx cf test-folder

    Installing globally

    $ npm install create-bulk-file --global
    $ yarn global add create-bulk-file

    then you can use like this:

    $ cf my-folder
    $ create-bulk-file my-folder

    Or, you can install create-bulk-file locally, for use in a single project:

    $ npm install create-bulk-file --save-dev
    $ yarn add create-bulk-file --dev

    Once you install create-bulk-file project level. When you try to run that project. It will give error

    command not found: create-bulk-file
    command not found: cf

    Its because it does not know from where to execute. Best is to use via npx or install globally. If you still want to use locally there are two ways either call via command like this:

    $ ./node_modules/.bin/cf my-new-folder 
    where `my-new-folder` is you folder name

    or add in script like this:


    then you can run like this: yarn cf folder-name or npm run folder-name

    Note: cf and create-bulk-files are aliases you can use anyone which you want

    Note: If you find issue installing this package try with yarn or else report bug

    Note: To run the preceding commands, Node.js / npm or yarn must be installed.

    Usage and examples

    After you've installed create-bulk-file, you should be able to use the create-bulk-file or cf (alias) program.

    $ cf block
    ✔ Files created successfully

    You can also pass path as an option where you want to generate these files

    cf block3 --path=./test/test2

    It will generate files like this:

    ├── test
    │   ├── test2
    │       ├── block3
    │       │   ├── *.css
    │       │   ├── *.js

    (Note: Path must be relative to existing project. For example in above example block3 is created inside test2 folder )


    • --path or -p : Path where these bulk files are installed . [Default: ./]

    How it works?

    1. When you use this cli first time it will ask for some basic config for creating config file. First step Note: If you dont want to use default config. I would suggest still do this you can update later. Let it create config and template file.
    2. Once its done. It creates .crc inside it has two files which is required for this module to use. First step Also you see your folder with the files which you input for.

    Advance Usage(extending configuration)

    When I started creating this package I was only designing for react specific. Later I realized it can be done for any node js application. So its not only react focus!

    • If you dont want to prompt from cli and want your specific file. You can do that also easily
      1. Simply create .crc folder in project directory.

      2. It required two files: .crc.json and template.js. (Note: It's case senstive. Do check filename twice)

      3. .crc.json: It just a json file with key value pair

                <file type>: <file extension>

        For example: If you want to add files for vue js and its extension would be .vue. you can simply do this like this:


        Note: It's not required rule. I feel comfortable doing this. You can choose your key value pair. Just make sure you map correct in template.js file.

      4. template.js: I would recommend to add this file as well. When running this package first time. It will also create this file. This file represent what should content should be rendered on your respective file. Its kind of template you want to render. Just like snippets. By default it will empty string except for jsx. That I do for demo how it works . So considering above example:

            exports[<file type>] = (filename) => //Your content which you want to render when this file generated

        for above case:

            exports["vue"] = (filename) => `//Vue file generated`
