Yet another Yo command line interface
YoCLI is a command line tool for the Yo pub/sub system. Its goal is to be as simple to use as the Yo app, while providing a clean composable interface. Currently tested only on OSX, but should work on linux as well.
You will need to retrieve your API key in order to use this package.
Everything below is currently in development.
Installation and Setup
Installation is the same as any CLI from npm:
$ npm install -g yocli
There is also a brew recipe
Setup happens automatically the first time you invoke
$ yocliHey there, let's setup Yo CLIWarning: YoCLI stores auth data unencrypted in ~/.yoclircWhat is your API key? (prompt)Would you like yocli to be symlinked to yo? (conflicts with yeoman)
You can later change your ~/.yoclirc manually, or type
yo init to go through setup again.
You may want to manually alias
yocli, but we don't because of Yeoman.
$ echo "alias yo='yocli'" >> ~/.bashrc # Or whatever shell you use
all: Yo all yo subscribers subs: Get subscriber count init: Redo first run configuration prompt
Options and flags
-k (--key): Use a specific API key (instead of the one in `~/.yoclirc`) -u (--url): Yo an image or link
You can pipe newline separated usernames into YoCLI. Successes go to stdout, errors to stderr.
$ echo "aulekin" | yocli $ echo "aulekin\naulekin" | yocli -k <some key> > successes.log
Please note that you can only pipe into basic and URL modes. Piping into --all is potentially useful as a rough eventing system, but it's too easy to accidently spam:
$ cat ~/.bashrc | yocli -a
