How do I interact with a newly created server created with child_process.spawn

I am trying to create an frontend for my privately hosted Counter-Strike Global Offensive servers, on the frontend when I find the launch server everything works fine and the server starts up and logs to the console. But how can I view information like server IP, players on the server and other things?

This is what I have used so far to start the server:'/create', function(req, res) {
    var child = spawn('/home/steam/steamcmd/csgo/srcds_run -game csgo -console +game_type 0 +game_mode 0 +host_workshop_collection 249376192 -tickrate 128 +maxplayers 20')
    child.stderr.on('data', function(err) {
    child.stdin.on('data', function(chunk) {
    child.stdout.on('data', function(chunk) {




Like, for example, if I was using a paid server server, I would have a control panel where I could see the server IP, restart / stop watching players in the game, and other things. Hope this was clear enough and sorry if it's poorly written. I'm not sure how else to say this.

Does the server accept input after it starts up? If possible, you can write with

child.stdin.write('my command\n');


Otherwise, you will have to request it using something like gamedig
