How to execute a shell command using Node.js

Published Jan 17 2023

Here’s how I ran a shell command from a Node.js script.

First I imported child from child_process:

import * as child from 'node:child_process'


const child = require('node:child_process')

Then you can call child.exec() like this:

child.exec(`mkdir test`)

I wrote an entire book on this topic πŸ‘‡
