Thanks!
General purpose ts-node run opened file (using ${file}) whereas process-library is the base-folder of the ts app:

Unfortunately, this does not work with "console": "internalTerminal", I'm getting Cannot find module ts-node/register/transpile-only. (ts-node is installed locally as a dev dependency - I tried everything, deleting node_modules, restarting..).

With "console": "externalTerminal" it seems to work.

Any idea why this has to do with the "console" setting?
