Shell commands with Node

Running CLI Node scripts, capture the return value of a shell command:

const execSync = require('child_process').execSync;
const nodeVer = execSync('node -v', { encoding: 'utf8' });

Shell command reports in the CLI:

const execSync = require('child_process').execSync;
execSync('npm -g ls', { stdio: 'inherit' });
