npm-programmatic Build Status

NPM

npm-programmatic is a library that allows you to access npm commands programmatically from javascript. This is a fork that fixes an issue with saving dev dependencies. If you don't need to save dev dependencies I do recommend the main version.

Usage

Every function returns a Bluebird promise.
CWD refers to current working directory, allowing you to ensure the command executes in a certain folder in the filesystem. If output is set, the output of npm will be shown in the console.

Installation of Packages

    npm.install(packages, opts).then(function)
Name Type Value
packages Array packages to be installed
opts Object save:true/false; global:true/false; cwd:string; saveDev:true/false; output:true/false

Example

    var npm = require('npm-programmatic');
    npm.install(['left-pad'], {
        cwd:'/path/to/my/project',
        saveDev:true
    })
    .then(function(){
        console.log("SUCCESS!!!");
    })
    .catch(function(){
        console.log("Unable to install package");
    });

Unistallation of Packages

    npm.uninstall(packages, opts).then(function)
Name Type Value
packages Array packages to be uninstalled
opts Object save:true/false; global:true/false; cwd:string; saveDev:true/false; output:true/false

Example

    var npm = require('npm-programmatic');
    npm.uninstall(['left-pad'], {
        cwd:'/path/to/my/project',
        save:true
    })
    .then(function(){
        console.log("SUCCESS!!!");
    })
    .catch(function(){
        console.log("Unable to uninstall package");
    });

List Installed Packages

    npm.list(path).then(function)
Name Type Value
path String path at which to look

Example

    var npm = require('npm-programmatic');
    npm.list('/path/to/project')
    .then(function(arrayOfPackages){
        console.log(arrayOfPackages);
    })
    .catch(function(){
        console.log("Unable to uninstall package");
    });
