kiss-cli v0.5.5

Keep It Stupid Simple - An agnostic file snippets :kiss:

:wrench: KISS

KISS allow to create your own snippets for a context and share these with your project team mates.

npm install -g kiss-cli
mkdir myproject
cd myproject
kiss server ./index.js

:popcorn: Try it!

  • KISS must be installed globally
  • To add new types, create templates in a folder named .kiss at the root directory of your project beside of your package.json file
  • Templates files must be named <type>.<extension>
  • Kiss priorize templates in (project)/.kiss > /User/home/.kiss > (npm_prefix_path)/.kiss

You could need KISS if

  • You are a developer
  • You are a developer in a team of developers
  • You share templates with your team (Back/Front)
  • You are bored of copying/pasting script content to create new script files
  • ... :kiss:

This file generator was motivated by the famous French Bonaldi's Effect:
> _It's totally unnecessary and therefore strictly indispensable!_
But it's also a great concept of the play La Cantatrice chauve by Eugène Ionesco :)
