Describe the bug

Running the dev or watch CLI commands after upgrading to version 0.23.0 results in the following error:

TypeError: Cannot read properties of undefined (reading 'mode')
    at startVitest (file:///Frontend/node_modules/vitest/dist/chunk-vite-node-externalize.41bf722e.mjs:10588:57)
    at CAC.start (file:///Frontend/node_modules/vitest/dist/cli.mjs:676:15)
    at CAC.runMatchedCommand (file:///Frontend/node_modules/vitest/dist/cli.mjs:645:34)

It's most likely caused by #1029 adding the mode value as an extra parameter to the start method:

The start method is not called with mode when running these commands, but only cliFilters and options (that are then assigned to the wrong parameters).


Try running the following commands:

  • vitest dev
  • vitest watch
