I’m starting to get familiar with Node.js and I can say that I really like the idea of having JavaScript on the server-side. I thought to re-implement some of the commands and programs which are available in the linux command line using node.js. Don’t get me wrong I don’t want to replace the good old command line tools written in C with ones written in JS. I’m just doing this for fun and to see what are the capabilities of Node.

I created a Github repo for this, called linjs. I added the first program, which has the same functionality as the “yes” command on linux hosts.

There will be a post soon which will present the code of the re-implemented yes command.
