    npm-pkgr

    Build Status Dependency Status devDependency Status

    npm-pkgr caches npm install results by hashing dependencies from package.json and npm-shrinkwrap.json.

    If your package.json did not change from last build, then you will immediately get either:

    • a symlink node_modules..
    • a full node_modules copy..

    .. to the latest build result located in ~/.npm-pkgr

    npm-pkgr frees your deployments from npm network issues and will make your deploys run fast.

    Usage

    npm install -g npm-pkgr

    Use npm-pkgr instead of npm install and you are done.

    npm-pkgr

    Hashes and finds the latest build corresponding to package.json and npm-shrinkwrap.json.

    npm-pkgr --production

    Hashes and finds the latest build corresponding to npm-shrinkwrap.json.

    npm-pkgr --show-npm-output

    Displays npm's output, if npm install is run.

    Every other flag passed to npm-pkgr is passed down to the npm install command.

    Cache folder

    The cache folder used by npm-pkgr is ~/.npm-pkgr for the current user.

    npm-pkgr prune

    Removes cache folders older than a month (in your ~/.npm-pkgr folder)

    Debug

    DEBUG=npm-pkgr* npm-pkgr

    Will give you some debug information.

    strategy

    Default strategy is to symlink $CWD/node_modules -> ~/.npm-pkgr/$hash/node_modules.

    You can also get a full copy of the ~/.npm-pkgr/$hash/node_modules.

    npm-pkgr --strategy=copy

    Careful, if you --strategy copy, you will end up installing the copy package

    symlinks

    Use the --symlinks option if you wish make some files or folders from your project available during npm install.

    For example if your project includes a local .cache folder for the npm cache and a node_shrinkwrap folder for pre-packaged modules, then you can use the following command to make those resources available when npm-pkgr runs npm install:

    npm-pkgr --symlinks=.cache,node_shrinkwrap

    cachepath

    Use the --cachepath option if you want use a specific folder for the cache folder.

    npm-pkgr --cachepath=/data/node-vXXX/.npm-pkgr

    features

    • insanely fast npm install if already done
    • npm install once in your CI server, deploy everywhere
    • solves shrinkwrap inconsistencies/problems
    • solves devDependencies updates even when you use a shrinkwrap
    • concurrent builds
    • get symlinks or copy to cached node_modules
