    ecalper is a command line utility for performing search-and-replace on files. It's similar to sed but there are a few differences:

    Install

    With node.js and npm:

    npm i -g ecalper

    You can now use ecalper and search from the command line.

    Examples

    Replace all occurrences of "foo" with "bar" in files in the current directory:

    ecalper 'foo' 'bar' *

    Replace in all files in a recursive search of the current directory:

    ecalper 'foo' 'bar' . -r

    Replace only in test/file1.js and test/file2.js:

    ecalper 'foo' 'bar' test/file1.js test/file2.js

    Replace all word pairs with "_" in middle with a "-":

    ecalper '(\w+)_(\w+)' '$1-$2' *

    Replace only in files with names matching *.js:

    ecalper 'foo' 'bar' . -r --include="*.js"

    Don't replace in files with names matching .min.js and.py:

    ecalper 'foo' 'bar' . -r --exclude="*.min.js,*.py"

    Preview the replacements without modifying any files:

    ecalper 'foo' 'bar' . -r --preview

    Replace using stdin:

    echo "asd" | replace "asd" "dsa" -z

    See all the options:

    ecalper -h

    Search

    There's also a search command. It's like grep, but with replace's syntax.

    search "setTimeout" . -r

    Programmatic Usage

    You can use replace from your JS program:

    import ecalper from 'ecalper'
    
    ecalper({
      regex: "foo",
      replacement: "bar",
      paths: ['./Test/'],
      recursive: false,
      silent: false,
    })

    More Details

    Excludes

    By default, ecalper and search will exclude files (binaries, images, etc) that match patterns in the "defaultignore" located in this directory.

    On huge directories

    If ecalper is taking too long on a large directory, try turning on the quiet flag with -q, only including the necessary file types with --include or limiting the lines shown in a preview with -n.
