Status

Travis Build Status

Install

npm install replify

Usage

var replify = require('replify')
  , app = require('http').createServer()

replify('realtime-101', app)

Advanced options.

replify(options, app, [contexts])

options

name
or
options
object.
  • name
    [String] - Name for the REPL domain socket. Default: replify. You are going to want to assign a value for this. Note: Due to the fact that Node no longer cleans up domain socket files behind itself,
    replify
    automatically paves over the existing file when it starts.
  • path
    [String] - Default: /tmp/repl. The REPL will be located at
    {path}/{name}{extension}
    .
  • extension
    [String] - Default: .sock.
  • logger
    [Object] - Default: console.
  • start
    [Function] - Default: require('repl').start. Useful for custom repls like replpad.
  • app
    [Object] - Alternative to using the
    app
    parameter.
  • contexts
    [Object] - Alternative to using the
    contexts
    parameter.

app

Primary context. Exposed as:

realtime-101> app

contexts

Additional contexts exposed under the name of the key.

replify('realtime-101', app, { 'io': io })

Connect to the REPL

NETCAT (nc)

$ nc -U /tmp/repl/realtime-101.sock

SOCAT

$ socat READLINE /tmp/repl/realtime-101.sock

repl-client (rc)

Node repl client with history scrollback and tab completion. Learn more about

repl-client (rc)
. Install with

npm install repl-client -g
.
$ rc /tmp/repl/realtime-101.sock

$ rc \\.\pipe\tmp-repl\realtime-101.sock
