NPM\-CACHE

Section: (1)
Updated: December 2016

NAME

npm-cache - Manipulates packages cache  

SYNOPSIS

npm cache add <tarball file>
npm cache add <folder>
npm cache add <tarball url>
npm cache add <name>@<version>

npm cache ls [<path>]

npm cache clean [<path>]
 

DESCRIPTION

Used to add, list, or clear the npm cache folder.
*
add: Add the specified package to the local cache. This command is primarily intended to be used internally by npm, but it can provide a way to add data to the local installation cache explicitly.
*
ls: Show the data in the cache. Argument is a path to show in the cache folder. Works a bit like the find program, but limited by the depth config.
*
clean: Delete data out of the cache folder. If an argument is provided, then it specifies a subpath to delete. If no argument is provided, then the entire cache is cleared.

 

DETAILS

npm stores cache data in the directory specified in npm config get cache. For each package that is added to the cache, three pieces of information are stored in {cache}/{name}/{version}:
*
.../package/package.json: The package.json file, as npm sees it.
*
.../package.tgz: The tarball for that version.

Additionally, whenever a registry request is made, a .cache.json file is placed at the corresponding URI, to store the ETag and the requested data. This is stored in {cache}/{hostname}/{path}/.cache.json. Commands that make non-essential registry requests (such as search and view, or the completion scripts) generally specify a minimum timeout. If the .cache.json file is younger than the specified timeout, then they do not make an HTTP request to the registry.  

CONFIGURATION

 

cache

Default: ~/.npm on Posix, or %AppData%/npm-cache on Windows. The root cache folder.
