How can I run a script at next dev?


This Content is from Stack Overflow. Question asked by Dimitri Borgers

I have a NextJS project where I need to run a file after running npm run dev in dev or npm run start in prod. To do this, I’ve tried modifying my package.json:

"scripts": {
    "dev": "next dev && ts-node --compiler-options {"module":"CommonJS"} services/airdropLoop.ts",
    "build": "next build",
    "start": "next start && ts-node --compiler-options {"module":"CommonJS"",
    "postinstall": "prisma generate"

Note that the reason I use --compiler-options "{"module":"CommonJS"}" is because I use ES6 import syntax, not commonjs syntax (i.e. require()). However, if I do this, I keep getting the error:

> dev
> ts-node --compiler-options "{"module":"CommonJS"}" services/airdropLoop.ts

How can I run my script? Is this not the right way to immediately run a file after dev or start?
