Get your PATH prepended with locally installed binaries

In npm run scripts you can execute locally installed binaries by name. This enables the same outside npm.

Install

$ npm install npm-run-path

Usage

const childProcess = require('child_process');
const npmRunPath = require('npm-run-path');

console.log(process.env.PATH);
//=> '/usr/local/bin'

console.log(npmRunPath());
//=> '/Users/sindresorhus/dev/foo/node_modules/.bin:/Users/sindresorhus/dev/node_modules/.bin:/Users/sindresorhus/node_modules/.bin:/Users/node_modules/.bin:/node_modules/.bin:/usr/local/bin'

// `foo` is a locally installed binary
childProcess.execFileSync('foo', {
	env: npmRunPath.env()
});
