I have not found a way to perform the code execution via a configuration file, but you can make it happen via the following trick: Write a script that executes the code and then programmatically starts a REPL. Example: The following are the contents of a file called startnode.js.
#!/usr/local/bin/node var repl = require("repl"); var context = repl.start("$ ").context; // Configure what’s available in the REPL context.util = require("util");Under Unix, the first line lets you run startnode.js as a command, if you make it executable.
rauschma> chmod u+x startnode.js rauschma> ./startnode.js $ util.log("hello") 17 Nov 21:39:29 - helloYou can also use the following command to run it (with or without the first line):
rauschma> node startnode.jsThe Node.js documentation has more information on the REPL API and on commands that are available while running it. For example:
$ .help .break Sometimes you get stuck, this gets you out .clear Break, and also clear the local context .exit Exit the repl .help Show repl options
