A commander-cli generator for Yeoman
A CLI generator for Yeoman.
Install Yeoman if you haven't done so already.
$ npm install -g yo
To install generator-commander:
$ npm install -g generator-commander
At the command-line,
cd into an empty directory, run this command and initiate the app generator:
$ yo commander
This will generate files in the current working directory for a Commander.js based application.
To create a commander.js command-component initiate the command generator:
$ yo commander:command <name>
This will create a new file in
cmds/ directory of the current working directory. This file can be included in your application by adding
to your application in the
bin directory; or optionally install the
autocmdr components for auto-loading
autocmdr and generator-commander are brothers. autcmdr is a command line tool for running commands (commands in a commander.js command-component) and a set of libraries for enhancing command line applications. generator-commander is a tool for scaffolding commander.js command-components and command line applications.
autocmdr from a shell will load commands located in the current working directory's
cmds/ folder. New commands can be added to any directory by invoking
yo commander:command <name>. When running
yo commander you are given the option of including autocmdr components in your application. See the autocmdr readme for a complete workflow and explanation of the available components.
