npm-idempotent-rebuild

run npm rebuild only if cannot load native modules

npm js standard style Dependency Status build status

Rebuilding native modules can be slow. This module attempts loading all native modules in the dependency tree. If they fail, it runs npm rebuild. This is useful when switching between node versions or between operating systems with cached node_modules directories.

cli usage

$ npm-idempotent-rebuild

programmatic usage

const npmIdempotentRebuild = require('npm-idempotent-rebuild')
npmIdempotentRebuild({dir: __dirname}, function (err, rebuilt) {
  console.log(err, rebuilt ? : 'rebuilt node modules' : 'skipped rebuilding')
})

api

with jsig type annotation:

npmIdempotentRebuild(opt, callback : Callback<rebuilt: Boolean>) => void

  • dir: String - the cwd for running npm rebuild, defaults to current cwd.
