    Avoid Duplicate Commands by Calling one NPM Script from Another


    We can get a lot of utility through CLI tools invoked via npm scripts. Many of these tools have APIs with many flags and options, meaning we will frequently find ourselves using the same CLI tool in multiple npm scripts, often with only minor differences.
