Creating stylish and interactive cli scripts using Javascript

Speaking on 16:00 at ETraveli
Scripting on the command line is not an easy task. If you've ever recoiled at the syntax of Bash scripts or thought you should learn Perl and gave up in horror after a few hours, then this talk is for you! We'll see how we can leverage our knowledge of Javascript, Google's zxtool and a few select npm packages (commander, chalk etc) to create stylish and interactive cli experiences without the pain of writing if/ elif/ fi


Angelos has 20 years of experience in web development. He has happily spent the last 12 of those working as a frontend developer and UX designer in Adzuna. He loves all things HTML / CSS / JS and is probably one of the few people who actually enjoys delving into legacy jQuery monoliths and breaking them apart.
