NPM

Section: (1)
Updated: December 2016
Index Return to Main Contents
 

NAME

npm - a JavaScript package manager Build Status https://img.shields.io/travis/npm/npm/latest.svg https://travis-ci.org/npm/npm  

SYNOPSIS

This is just enough info to get you up and running. Much more info available via npm help once it's installed.  

IMPORTANT

You need node v0.10 or higher to run this program. To install an old and unsupported version of npm that works on node 0.3 and prior, clone the git repo and dig through the old tags and branches. npm is configured to use npm, Inc.'s public package registry at https://registry.npmjs.org by default. You can configure npm to use any compatible registry you like, and even run your own registry. Check out the doc on registries https://docs.npmjs.com/misc/registry. Use of someone else's registry may be governed by terms of use. The terms of use for the default public registry are available at https://www.npmjs.com.  

Super Easy Install

npm is bundled with node https://nodejs.org/en/download/.  

Windows Computers

Get the MSI https://nodejs.org/en/download/. npm is in it.  

Apple Macintosh Computers

Get the pkg https://nodejs.org/en/download/. npm is in it.  

Other Sorts of Unices

Run make install. npm will be installed with node. If you want a more fancy pants install (a different version, customized paths, etc.) then read on.  

Fancy Install (Unix)

There's a pretty robust install script at https://www.npmjs.com/install.sh. You can download that and run it. Here's an example using curl:
curl -L https://www.npmjs.com/install.sh | sh
 

Slightly Fancier

You can set any npm configuration params with that script:
npm_config_prefix=/some/path sh install.sh
Or, you can run it in uber-debuggery mode:
npm_debug=1 sh install.sh
 

Even Fancier

Get the code with git. Use make to build the docs and do other stuff. If you plan on hacking on npm, make link is your friend. If you've got the npm source code, you can also semi-permanently set arbitrary config keys using the ./configure --key=val ..., and then run npm commands by doing node cli.js <cmd> <args>. (This is helpful for testing, or running stuff without actually installing npm itself.)  

Windows Install or Upgrade

Many improvements for Windows users have been made in npm 3 - you will have a better experience if you run a recent version of npm. To upgrade, either use Microsoft's upgrade tool https://github.com/felixrieseberg/npm-windows-upgrade, download a new version of Node http://nodejs.org/download/, or follow the Windows upgrade instructions in the npm Troubleshooting Guide https://github.com/npm/npm/wiki/Troubleshooting#upgrading-on-windows. If that's not fancy enough for you, then you can fetch the code with git, and mess with it directly.  

Installing on Cygwin

No.  

Uninstalling

So sad to see you go.
sudo npm uninstall npm -g
Or, if that fails,
sudo make uninstall
 

More Severe Uninstalling

Usually, the above instructions are sufficient. That will remove npm, but leave behind anything you've installed. If you would like to remove all the packages that you have installed, then you can use the npm ls command to find them, and then npm rm to remove them. To remove cruft left behind by npm 0.x, you can use the included clean-old.sh script file. You can run it conveniently like this:
npm explore npm -g -- sh scripts/clean-old.sh
npm uses two configuration files, one for per-user configs, and another for global (every-user) configs. You can view them by doing:
npm config get userconfig   # defaults to ~/.npmrc
npm config get globalconfig # defaults to /usr/local/etc/npmrc
Uninstalling npm does not remove configuration files by default. You must remove them yourself manually if you want them gone. Note that this means that future npm installs will not remember the settings that you have chosen.  

More Docs

Check out the docs https://docs.npmjs.com/, You can use the npm help command to read any of them. If you're a developer, and you want to use npm to publish your program, you should read this https://docs.npmjs.com/misc/developers  

BUGS

When you find issues, please report them:
*
web: https://github.com/npm/npm/issues

Be sure to include all of the output from the npm command that didn't work as expected. The npm-debug.log file is also helpful to provide. You can also look for isaacs in #node.js on irc://irc.freenode.net. She will no doubt tell you to put the output in a gist or email.
