In-Execution Inputs


Sometimes we need to make questions base on some value or merely during the factory function execution.

Code section

For this purpose we can use Inquirer JS. You already have inquirer JS when create a new schematic project with Project Builder CLI. If you look at utils folder you will see a file name: prompt.ts

This file has three methods: askQuestion, askChoices and askConfirmation. However, you can add methods depends on your needs.

import { green, cyan, bold } from 'ansi-colors';
import { askConfirmation } from '../../utils/prompt';
export async function installCollectionQuestion(): Promise<boolean> {
const message = bold(
green('Do you want to install the collections if they are not already installed?'),
return await askConfirmation(message, true);
