Can I serve CLI Applications using Nginx

I want to create a CLI app (in this case named CLI_APP), that will output
json and can be accessed via web.

In Linux terms, it will look like:

Request | Web_Server | CLI_APP | ADD_UI | Web_Server > Response

Now, I will run the app like `CLI_APP --output json`. Here, I am saying
that the CLI_APP will output json (for REST API).

Here, `ADD_UI --output web` will add HTML, CSS, JS etc. to the JSON output.

Can Nginx help me send the requests to CLI_APP via STDIN and serve the
final output of ADD_UI --output web?

Thanks and Best Regards,
Ahmad Ismail
