You have a dependency in your project and want to execute a command using it? The pnpm exec command can help you with that.
pnpm exec eslint . --ext .ts
Given that ESLint is a project dependency, this example shows how to use the
pnpm exec command to run the ESLint tool on all TypeScript files within the project.
Some use cases
You need to do a specific command that is not part of your npm scripts
You want to execute a tool that is a dependency of your project without having to install it globally
You need to execute a CLI package command in a CI pipeline, and this package is already included in the
devDependenciesof your project.
Good to know
If the command you are using does not conflict with a built-in pnpm command, there is no need to specify 'exec'. Referring to the previous example, you can simply run:
pnpm eslint . --ext .ts
It's one of the small details that make using
pnpm so pleasant.
