Executing Commands

Let’s imagine you have Namespaces laid out in the following parent-child relationship:

└── parent
    └── child
        └── grandchild

Invoking a command when in the console

Given command ‘foo’ available to namespace parent:child:grandchild, how would you invoke it?

> bcome child:grandchild
> foo


When you an enter an IRB session, you are in the scope of an instance of a Ruby object (see: @node).

Bcome’s Console assigns an instance of your namespace as this session object.

Invoking commands with Keyed-access

To invoke command ‘foo’ available to namespace parent:child:grandchild, you would enter the following command in your terminal:

> bcome child:grandchild:foo

Invoking commands from orchestration scripts

If you have a namespace instance, for example @node, then any available command may be invoked directly on it.

For example, given a namespace in an instance var @node, and a command, :foo, you would:



Any command, be they in-built menu commands (see Command Menu), public-methods on a given namespace object, or a custom-command you’ve defined yourself in the Registry (see Registry Overview), is accessible in this way.
