    • NOTE 1: While the examples below use the standard lint checker, you are free to use any lint checker you like.
    • NOTE 2: The watch script in package.json is optional and is only necessary if you plan to invoke rerun-script via npm run. You can use any script name you like.

    package.json

    compact (recommended) format:
    {
        "scripts": {
            "test": "node test.js",
            "lint": "standard",
            "watch": "rerun-script"
        },
    
        "watches": {
            "test": [ "*.js", "lib/**/*.js", "test/**/*.js" ],
            "lint": [ "*.js", "lib/**/*.js", "test/**/*.js" ]
        }
    }
    
    verbose format:
    {
        "scripts": {
            "test": "node test.js",
            "lint": "standard",
            "watch": "rerun-script"
        },
    
        "watches": [
            {
                "script": "test",
                "patterns": [ "*.js", "lib/**/*.js", "test/**/*.js" ]
            },
            {
                "script": "lint",
                "patterns": [ "*.js", "lib/**/*.js", "test/**/*.js" ]
            }
        ]
    }
    

    If you only have one pattern to match for a script, you can pass in a string instead of an array:

    {
        "scripts": {
            "test": "node test.js",
            "lint": "standard",
            "watch": "rerun-script"
        },
    
        "watches": {
            "test": "test/**/*.js",
            "lint": "*.js"
        }
    }
    

    start the watcher

    # directly
    $ ./node_modules/.bin/rerun-script
    
    # or via `npm run watch`
    $ npm run watch
