A simple short for lazy developers - if no command line arguments and package.json exist then use the main property.

EDIT: was use index.js

or check for a package.json file in the directory and use it's main entry.

Why reopened? This change was applied in the last change to nodemon and released to npm...

dylang commented May 2, 2011

i reopened because i didn't see the change in the changelist associated with this but i must have done something wrong because my comment wasn't included and the feature works now.

thanks a ton for adding it!

this doesn't work for me, main is not intended to start the app, it would be nicer if we looked for a npm start (ie. scripts.start in package.json), and run that command as using npm --exec
