spawny Build Status

A small wrapper around child_process.spawn with some helpful features.

Getting Started

Install the module with: npm install spawny

var spawny = require('spawny');
spawny('npm version patch', true, cb);


spawny(command, useCmdify, callback)


  • command - The command that you would type into the terminal
  • useCmdify - whether cmdify should be called on the command (required for some scripts to work on windows). Defaults to false.
  • callback - the callback to be called when the process terminates


  • Pipes stdio into child process
  • Simplifies API (at cost of flexibility)
