NPM (Node Package Manager)

In this episode we are going to take a look at Node Package Manager or npm and how it helps us to manage dependencies for our project.

Node Package Manager or npm for short started out as package manager for Node and JavaScript components but over time developers tarted using it for all types of packages. As you will see in this video video we can install all sorts of packages from npm that are not necessarily JavaScript plugins or components.

With npm you can easily install, update and uninstall your development dependencies, and share it with your colleagues or with the community if you are working on the open source project.

In this episode we are going to cover how to:

  • Install Node.js
  • Initialise npm
  • Install dependencies
  • Search for packages
  • Look at the package.json and package-lock.json files
  • Uninstall dependencies

And these are all the things that we will need to know to continue with this series.
