    Using npm run to launch local scripts

    javascriptJavaScript

    npm run allows you to configure scripts inside of your package.json file which can access locally installed node packages. If you're comfortable with this technique, you can also grunt, gulp, or other build tools by customizing your scripts and saving them inside of your package.json file. With this approach, when a developer starts a new project with your package.json, they can simply run npm install then npm run yourscript without having to install any node packages globally.
