pnpm patch <pkg>

Added in: v7.4.0

Prepare a package for patching (inspired by a similar command in Yarn).

This command will cause a package to be extracted in a temporary directory intended to be editable at will.

Once you're done with your changes, run pnpm patch-commit <path> (with <path> being the temporary directory you received) to generate a patchfile and register it into your top-level manifest via the patchedDependencies field.

Usage:

pnpm patch <pkg name>@<version>

Options

--edit-dir <dir>

Added in v7.11.0

The package that needs to be patched will be extracted to this directory.
