Publish a package.
npm publish [<tarball>|<folder>] [--tag <tag>] [--access <public|restricted>] [--otp otpcode] Publishes '.' if no argument supplied Sets tag 'latest' if no --tag specified
Publishes a package to the registry so that it can be installed by name. All files in the package directory are included if no local
.npmignore file exists. If both files exist and a file is ignored by
.gitignore but not by
.npmignore then it will be included. See
npm-developers for full details on what's included in the published package, as well as details on how the package is built.
<folder>: A folder containing a package.json file
<tarball>: A url or file path to a gzipped tar archive containing a single folder with a package.json file inside.
[--tag <tag>] Registers the published package with the given tag, such that
npm install <name>@<tag> will install this version. By default,
npm publish updates and
npm install installs the
latest tag. See
npm-dist-tag for details about tags.
[--access <public|restricted>] Tells the registry whether this package should be published as public or restricted. Only applies to scoped packages, which default to
restricted. If you don't have a paid account, you must publish with
--access public to publish scoped packages.
[--otp <otpcode>] If you have two-factor authentication enabled in
auth-and-writes mode then you can provide a code from your authenticator with this. If you don't include this and you're running from a TTY then you'll be prompted.
Fails if the package name and version combination already exists in the specified registry.
Once a package is published with a given name and version, that specific name and version combination can never be used again, even if it is removed with npm-unpublish.
npm@5, both a sha1sum and an integrity field with a sha512sum of the tarball will be submitted to the registry during publication. Subsequent installs will use the strongest supported algorithm to verify downloads.
For a "dry run" that does everything except actually publishing to the registry, see
npm-pack, which figures out the files to be included and packs them into a tarball to be uploaded to the registry.
