A CLI tool to run multiple npm-scripts in parallel or sequential.

npm-run-all2 why?

A maintenance fork of npm-run-all. npm-run-all2 is a fork of npm-run-all with dependabot updates, release automation enabled and some troublesome babel stuff removed to further reduce maintenance burden. Hopefully this labor can upstream some day when mysticatea returns, but until then, welcome aboard!

⤴️ Motivation

  • Simplify. The official npm run-script command cannot run multiple scripts, so if we want to run multiple scripts, it's redundant a bit. Let's shorten it by glob-like patterns.
    Before: npm run clean && npm run build:css && npm run build:js && npm run build:html
    After: npm-run-all clean build:*
  • Cross platform. We sometimes use & to run multiple command in parallel, but cmd.exe (npm run-script uses it by default) does not support the &. Half of Node.js users are using it on Windows, so the use of & might block contributions. npm-run-all --parallel works well on Windows as well.

💿 Installation

$ npm install npm-run-all2 --save-dev
# or
$ yarn add npm-run-all2 --dev
  • It requires Node@>=14. It may work on older versions of Node, but no guarantees are given.

📖 Usage

CLI Commands

This npm-run-all package provides 3 CLI commands.

The main command is npm-run-all. We can make complex plans with npm-run-all command.

Both run-s and run-p are shorthand commands. run-s is for sequential, run-p is for parallel. We can make simple plans with those commands.

Yarn Compatibility

If a script is invoked with Yarn, npm-run-all will correctly use Yarn to execute the plan's child scripts.

Node API

This npm-run-all package provides Node API.
