Alinex Core

core icon

The core module is a base for all of my Alinex modules. It contains three parts:

  1. Some helper to manage alinex modules by myself and keep them in-sync like setup new modules or update the documentation theme.
  2. Basic functions needed in alinex modules. This is a collection of small functions which are not covered in separate modules.
  3. Standards definition for Alinex modules as documentation.

It's common methods which are necessary in nearly all of my packages at the moment contains:

  • exit - handler for process exits
  • logo - a method to present ASCII art command line logos


To include this in your module install it:

npm install @alinex/core --save

Now only include it in your code and call it's methods. Or use the bin/... commands to use the Alinex environment helpers.
