The cli is aviables when you simply type package name in shell.

The command takes two positional arguments. The first one is obligatory and takes a path to template.

The second one is optional and takes path to JSON file with variables required by template. If not passed variables passed to template are equal to empty object ({}).

@est-normalis/ejs-prewiev index.html.ejs variables.json

If your file has .json extension you can ommit it when typing its path, however if there is another file mathing name without extension it will be required and parsed.

Example

index.html.ejs:

<p><%= somekey %></p>

variables.json:

{
    "somekey": "somevalue"
}

command:

@est-normalis/ejs-prewiev index.html.ejs variables

result (html):

<p>somevalue</p>

You can pass certain flags to the command:
