pnpm -r, --recursive

Aliases: m, multi, recursive, <command> -r

Runs a command in every project of a workspace, when used with the following commands:

  • install
  • list
  • outdated
  • publish
  • rebuild
  • remove
  • unlink
  • update
  • why

Runs a command in every project of a workspace, excluding the root project, when used with the following commands:

  • exec
  • run
  • test
  • add

If you want the root project be included even when running scripts, set the include-workspace-root setting to true.

Usage example:

pnpm -r publish


  • Default: true
  • Type: true, false, deep

Link locally available packages in workspaces of a monorepo into node_modules instead of re-downloading them from the registry. This emulates functionality similar to yarn workspaces.

When this is set to deep, local packages can also be linked to subdependencies.

Be advised that it is encouraged instead to use npmrc for this setting, to enforce the same behaviour in all environments. This option exists solely so you may override that if necessary.


  • Default: 4
  • Type: Number

Set the maximum number of tasks to run simultaneously. For unlimited concurrency use Infinity.

You can set the workpace-concurrency as <= 0 and it will use amount of cores of the host as: max(1, (number of cores) - abs(workspace-concurrency))


  • Default: true
  • Type: Boolean

If true, stops when a task throws an error.

This config does not affect the exit code. Even if --no-bail is used, all tasks will finish but if any of the tasks fail, the command will exit with a non-zero code.

Example (run tests in every package, continue if tests fail in one of them):

pnpm -r --no-bail test


  • Default: true
  • Type: Boolean

When true, packages are sorted topologically (dependencies before dependents). Pass --no-sort to disable.


pnpm -r --no-sort test


  • Default: false
  • Type: boolean

When true, the order of packages is reversed.

pnpm -r --reverse run clean

--filter <package_selector>
