vs code run js file

Let’s have a look at how to run a JS file inside VS Code.



To run a JS file inside VS Code first you have to make sure you have NodeJS installed.

Once you have NodeJS installed, you can open your JS file in VS Code and simply press F5 to start debugging.

This will run the JS file.

If this doesn’t work, you can also run the file via node command.

Open up the terminal by pressing down CTRL + SHIFT + ~ (tilde) go to the root source of your file and run:

node myFile.js

That’s it!

Happy coding 😊
