Node.js Question

Run multiple commands in a node package file?

For example:

"scripts": {
"watch": "coffee --watch --compile .; compass watch public/compass"
},


How can I get this working, so it compiles my coffescripts and my compass project?

http://substack.net/task_automation_with_npm_run

sequential sub-tasks

If you have 2 tasks you want to run in series, you can just npm run each task separated by a &&:

"build": "npm run build-js && npm run build-css"

parallel sub-tasks

If you want to run some tasks in parallel, just use & as the separator!

"watch": "npm run watch-js & npm run watch-css"
