Rush.launch() method

This API is used by the @microsoft/rush front end to launch the “rush” command-line. Third-party tools should not use this API. Instead, they should execute the “rush” binary and start a new Node.js process.


static launch(launcherVersion: string, arg: ILaunchOptions): void;


Parameter Type Description
launcherVersion string The version of the @microsoft/rush wrapper used to call invoke the CLI.
arg ILaunchOptions  




Earlier versions of the rush frontend used a different API contract. In the old contract, the second argument was the isManaged value of the object.

Even though this API isn’t documented, it is still supported for legacy compatibility.
