Readme

childish-process
A simpler way to call spawn or exec of child_process. Makes it easy to call spawn with custom event-handlers. Makes options easy to template, extend, invoke strategies, generating event-handlers that can notify, for example.

Use

NPM
var run = require('childish-process');

  • run(command[, options]); same as child_process.spawn though using cross-spawn-async for better Windows support
  • run(command[, options], callback); delegates to child_process.exec

The options may include a "childish" key with custom event handlers for any of: "stdout", "stderr", "error", or "close". It's unlikely that node will ever add a childish option to its child_process.
See the handlers function and its defaults for what can be overridden via childish options.

Configuration

The configuration options are getting a huge upgrade, to be documented and probably tested. Meanwhile, example usage can be found in datomiki's gulpfile.js and notifications.json, while gulp-npm-test is an example for code usage.
