On this page, create a list of run/debug configurations to be launched automatically on the project start. This may be helpful if you run some Grunt or Gulp.js tasks or npm scripts on a regular basis. All you need is just add the run/debug configurations that launch such tasks or scripts to the list of startup tasks.
