Mix is a configuration layer on top of Webpack, so to run your Mix tasks you only need to execute one of the NPM scripts that is included with the default Laravel
// Run all Mix tasks... npm run dev // Run all Mix tasks and minify output... npm run production
npm run watch command will continue running in your terminal and watch all relevant files for changes. Webpack will then automatically recompile your assets when it detects a change:
npm run watch
