npm restart [-- <args>]

This runs a package's "stop", "restart", and "start" scripts, and associated pre- and post- scripts, in the order given below:
Note that the "restart" script is run in addition to the "stop" and "start" scripts, not instead of them.
This is the behavior as of

behavior will be accompanied by an increase in major version number
