Synopsis

npm test [-- <args>]

Description

This runs a predefined command specified in the "test" property of a package's "scripts" object.

Example

{
"scripts": {
"test": "node test.js"
}
}
npm test
> npm@x.x.x test

Configuration

ignore-scripts

  • Default: false
  • Type: Boolean

If true, npm does not run scripts specified in package.json files.

Note that commands explicitly intended to run a particular script, such as npm start, npm stop, npm restart, npm test, and npm run-script will still run their intended script if ignore-scripts is set, but they will not run any pre- or post-scripts.

script-shell

  • Default: '/bin/sh' on POSIX systems, 'cmd.exe' on Windows
  • Type: null or String

The shell to use for scripts run with the npm exec, npm run and npm init <pkg> commands.
