    I occasionally try that as well and it sometimes helps but not for things like node apps that use https://vorpal.js.org REPLs. They just aren't usable in shell-mode.
  • google/zx: write shell scripts in JavaScript

    Got it, so more about the general idea of using Node to interact with a shell. Fair points but I'm not sure that's where zx falls. I'm looking at it in relation to projects like commander, oclif, and vorpal— frameworks for authoring and packaging local-use CLI tools written in JS, typically aimed at people who know JS and work in a terminal but don't know shell scripting. Those have the overhead of learning a framework, and don't do anything to help you work with the shell. zx seems to come from the other direction: instead of an esoteric framework, shell concepts and shell commands in a Node script.
