Artifact Registry tools for npm

This repository contains tools to simplify the process of working with npm repositories using Artifact Registry.

Artifact Registry Module

The Artifact Registry google-artifactregistry-auth module is an npm package which allows you to configure npm to interact with npm repositories stored in Artifact Registry.

For more details, see https://cloud.google.com/artifact-registry/docs/nodejs/authentication

The module authenticates to Artifact Registry using Google Application Default Credentials.

NOTE: This module would update credentials for all Artifact Registry repositories. It would not be suitable if you use multiple account credentials in npmrc file.

To use the module:

  1. Log in

    Using end user credentials:

    $ gcloud auth application-default login

    Using service account:

    $ export GOOGLE_APPLICATION_CREDENTIALS=[path/to/key.json]

  2. Add settings to connect to the repository to .npmrc. Use the output from the following command:

    $ gcloud beta artifacts print-settings npm



    PROJECT_ID is the ID of the project.

    REPOSITORY_ID is the ID of the repository.

    LOCATION is the location of the repository.

  3. Use one of these below options to run the script

    1. Run the module outside of the directory containing the target npmrc file

      $ npx google-artifactregistry-auth [path/to/.npmrc]

    2. Include the command in the scripts in package.json

      "scripts": {
          "artifactregistry-login": "npx google-artifactregistry-auth [path/to/.npmrc]",

      Run the script

      $ npm run artifactregistry-login

    3. npx should come with npm 5.2+. If npx is not available:

      Install the module from npmjs.com as a dev dependency and include the command in the script

      $ npm install google-artifactregistry-auth --save-dev

      "scripts": {
          "artifactregistry-login": "./node_modules/.bin/artifactregistry-auth [path/to/.npmrc]",

      Where [path/to/.npmrc] is the optional argument you can provide to the script. If no path is provided, .npmrc file at current directory is used.

      Run the script

      $ npm run artifactregistry-login


npm i google-artifactregistry-auth
