Reference private npm or local files created outside editor



  • Hello,

    I have many files I'll be using across many projects that I'd like to include in BAS. Is there either a way to add private npm packages or reference local files not created in the BAS node.js file editor?

    As long as I keep the file names the same can I copy over the js files at C:\Users<USER>\AppData\Roaming\BrowserAutomationStudio\apps\22.1.2\embedded<HASH>\distr\lib?

    Thanks,
    Jim

    You can use standard BAS actions to create\download\copy or move the necessary js files. You can get the current directory of the node js module using the __dirname method
