An attempt at making a
require style package system work with BASH scripting.
For the top level script that you with to make use of this, first create a
package.json file as you would by launching
npm init. Once this process is completed, install the
bash-require package using the following command:
npm install bash-require --save
Then start writing your shell script:
# bootstrap the bash require environment source $(dirname $0)/node_modules/bash-require/index.sh
As an example, try taking the
bash-colorize package for a spin:
First install the package (I'll publish it to NPM once I've worked out whether this is a good idea or not):
npm install DamonOehlman/bash-colorize --save
The write your script:
# bootstrap the bash require environment source $(dirname $0)/node_modules/bash-require/index.sh require colorize echo -en "$(colorize red)Hello $(colorize yellow)There!\n"
Then take if for a spin:
chmod a+x test.sh ./test.sh
All being well, you should see something similar to what is shown below:
