Notice: This extension is bundled with Visual Studio Code. It can be disabled but not uninstalled.
This extension supports running npm scripts defined in the
package.json as tasks. Scripts with the name 'build', 'compile', or 'watch' are treated as build tasks.
To run scripts as tasks, use the Tasks menu.
For more information about auto detection of Tasks, see the documentation.
The Npm Script Explorer shows the npm scripts found in your workspace. The explorer view is enabled by the setting
npm.enableScriptExplorer. A script can be opened, run, or debug from the explorer.
The extension supports to run the selected script as a task when editing the
package.jsonfile. You can either run a script from the hover shown on a script or using the command
Run Selected Npm Script.
The extension supports running a script as a task from a folder in the Explorer. The command
Run NPM Script in Folder... shown in the Explorer context menu finds all scripts in
package.json files that are contained in this folder. You can then select the script to be executed as a task from the resulting list. You enable this support with the
npm.runScriptFromFolder which is
false by default.
The extension fetches data from https://registry.npmjs.org and https://registry.bower.io to provide auto-completion and information on hover features on npm dependencies.
