Announcing ncline: a Node Program/Platform for Executing JavaScript Functions from a Command Line

JavaScript , Node.js No Comments »

I'm pleased to announce the release of my new open-source project, ncline.  ncline stands for "Node Command Line", and it's a platform for writing Node-powered JavaScript functions ("commands") that can be executed from a command line interface.

When you launch ncline, it loops through the collections of module folders within the master "cmdModules" folder and adds any functions exported under the "commands" property to a catalog of executable commands.  The user can then execute any of those commands from the ncline command prompt by typing the command name followed by any required or optional arguments.
