A tool for writing better scripts by Google - zx. I usually choose to write a Python or Deno script instead of a shell script for more convenience. I found this tool is so great, helping to write the script quickly. It would help if you tried it too.

Refer to the Git repo here for the detailed document: https://github.com/google/zx

Some examples


#!/usr/bin/env zx

let username = await question('What is your GitHub username? ');
let token = await question('Do you have GitHub token in env? ', {
  choices: Object.keys(process.env),

let headers = {};
if (process.env[token]) {
  headers = {
    Authorization: `token ${process.env[token]}`,
let res = await fetch(`https://api.github.com/users/${username}/repos`, {
let data = await res.json();
let urls = data.map((x) => x.git_url);

await $`mkdir -p backups`;

await Promise.all(urls.map((url) => $`git clone ${url}`));
