    Node-EnigmaVirtualBox

    Node API and CLI for executing Windows tool Enigma Virtual Box to bundle executable with data files.

    Abstract

    This is a Node API and CLI for executing the excellent Windows tool Enigma Virtual Box from within JavaScript. The essential point of this Node extension is not primarily to just abstract away the asynchronous CLI execution. Instead there are two other major points: First, this Node extension provides a fixed dependency, as other Node extensions which require Enigma Virtual Box under Windows can just depend (via their NPM package.json file) onto this extension. Second, as this Node extension automatically downloads, locally installs and uses an Enigma Virtual Box distribution, there is no need for any previously available system-wide Enigma Virtual Box installation. Just depend on this Node extension and Enigma Virtual Box is available!

    Notice

    Enigma Virtual Box is a tool available for Windows only! Hence, running the Enigma Virtual Box CLI and GUI requires this Node module to be used under a Windows run-time platform, of course. Only the built-in configuration file generator can be used on any platform.

    Installation

    Use the Node Package Manager (NPM) to install this module locally (default) or globally (with option -g):

    $ npm install [-g] enigmavirtualbox
    

    Usage

    var evb = require("enigmavirtualbox");
    evb.gen(<arg>[, <arg>, ...]).then(...);
    evb.gui(<arg>[, <arg>, ...]).then(...);   // requires Windows run-time platform
    evb.cli(<arg>[, <arg>, ...]).then(...);   // requires Windows run-time platform
    $ enigmavirtualbox gen <arg> [<arg> ...]
    $ enigmavirtualbox gui <arg> [<arg> ...]  # requires Windows run-time platform 
    $ enigmavirtualbox cli <arg> [<arg> ...]  # requires Windows run-time platform 

    Examples

    var evb = require("enigmavirtualbox");
    evb.gen("app.evp", "app-bundled.exe", "app.exe", "app.dat").then(...);
    evb.gui("app.evp").then(...);
    evb.cli("app.evp").then(...);
    # run the generator to create a new standard configuration 
    $ enigmavirtualbox gen app.evp app-bundled.exe app.exe app.dat
     
    # run the GUI to create/modify a new/existing configuration 
    $ enigmavirtualbox gui [app.evp]
     
    # runt the CLI to pack application according to configuration 
    $ enigmavirtualbox cli app.evp
