Using plugins

You can install frint-cli plugins just like a regular npm package in your project:

$ npm install --save frint-cli-hello

.frintrc

To register this new CLI plugin, update your .frintrc file in your project's root directory:

{
  "plugins": [
    "frint-cli-hello",
    "./some-relative/path"
  ]
}

Run the plugin

Now the frint-cli-hello plugin can be run as:

$ frint hello
world

Developing your own plugin

Building a plugin for frint-cli, is just like developing a regular FrintJS app.

// frint-cli-hello/index.js
const createApp = require('frint').createApp;
 
module.exports = createApp({
  name: 'hello', // this is the subcommand name in `$ frint hello`
 
  providers: [
    {
      name: 'summary',
      useValue: 'Short help text',
    },
    {
      name: 'description',
      useValue: 'Long help text',
    },
    {
      name: 'execute',
      useFactory: function () {
        return function () { // this returned function will be excuted
          console.log('world!');
        }
      },
    }
  ],
});

It is required that you have a provider called execute, which returns a function. This function will then be called when the subcommand is run.

To register multiple commands from the same plugin, you can export an array of App classes.

The summary and description is used when the user is trying to get help text by running:

$ frint help hello
