npm-restart — Restart a package

Synopsis

npm restart [-- <args>]

Description

This restarts a package.

This runs a package's "stop", "restart", and "start" scripts, and associated pre- and post- scripts, in the order given below:

1.

prerestart

2.

prestop

3.

stop

4.

poststop

5.

restart

6.

prestart

7.

Note

Note that the "restart" script is run in addition to the "stop" and "start" scripts, not instead of them.

This is the behavior as of npm major version 2.  A change in this behavior will be accompanied by an increase in major version number
