super simple remote repl for node processes
npm install remote-repl
The easiest way is to use stdin to inject a repl into the global context
You can also use tcp to start a repl with any node process. In your application pass a few options where the repl will listen for connections.
'tcp' port: 3021 secret: 'beepboop'
Then you can use
netcat to connect with
nc localhost 3021
'unix socket' path: '/tmp/node-repl-sock' secret: 'beepboop'
And then use
socat to connect with
socat /tmp/node-repl-sock stdin
Add more commands to switch repl contexts.
