Node.js Question

Commandline - Change path and run "npm install" on the same line

Is it possible to write a Command line that changes path before

npm install


e.g. command line:

- cd /d "d:\development\test" npm install


We want to execute
npm install
from our build server, hence we first need to change the path so Node will install
node_modules
in the right directory.

Answer
cd /d "d:\development\test" && npm install

The && operator will execute the right cmd part only if the left one succeed. If you want to execute nom install even if the left part failed, use

cd /d "d:\development\test"; npm install
