Commands for running scripts are available the npm category.

  • Run a script (npm run-script) defined in the package.json by picking a script defined in the scripts section of the package.json.
  • Rerun the last npm script you have executed using this extension.

The scripts can be run either in the integrated terminal or an output window.

Keyboard Shortcuts

This extension originally defined a chording keyboard shortcut for the R key. This has resulted in conflicts with the keybindings provided by VS Code and has caused frustration. To avoid these conflicts the keybindings have been changed to use the existing chording shortcut starting with the K key. The following table shows the default key bindings that can always be changed, see the customization documentation.

Command Old New
Rerun last script CMD+R R CMD+K L
Select a script to run CMD+R SHIFT+R CMD+K SHIFT+R
Terminate the running script CMD+R SHIFT+X CMD+K SHIFT+X
Run the test script CMD+R T CMD+K T

If you prefer the old keybindings starting with R you can define the setting npm.oldKeybindings.enable to true.
