Whether to stream output from scripts and commands to the console. This option is experimental.

  • Type: Boolean

  • Default: false

stream: true

tasks

A list of task names and glob patterns to filter the project's tasks by. This option is used to limit the visibility of tasks for users of the project. For example, project authors might want to limit the visibility of tasks that are bundled with Bolt or plans that should only be run as part of a larger workflow. When this option is not configured, all tasks are visible. This option does not prevent users from running tasks that are not part of this list.

  • Type: Array
