Configuring your npm client with your organization settings

As an organization member, you can configure your npm client to:

  • make a single package or all new packages you create locally use your organization's scope
  • make a single package or all new packages you create locally have default public visibility

Before configuring your npm client, you must install npm.

Configuring your npm client to use your organization's scope

If you will be publishing packages with your organization's scope often, you can add your organization's scope to your global .npmrc configuration file.

Setting your organization scope for all new packages

Note: Setting the organization scope using the steps below will only set the scope for new packages; for existing packages, you will need to update the name field in package.json.

On the command line, run the following command, replacing <org-name> with the name of your organization:

npm config set scope <org-name> --global

For packages you do not want to publish with your organization's scope, you must manually edit the package's package.json to remove the organization scope from the name field.

Setting your organization scope for a single package

  1. On the command line, navigate to the package directory.

    cd /path/to/package
  2. Run the following command, replacing <org-name> with the name of your organization:

    npm config set scope <org-name>

Changing default package visibility to public

By default, publishing a scoped package with npm publish will publish the package as private. If you are a member of an organization on the free organization plan, or are on the paid organization plan but want to publish a scoped package as public, you must pass the --access public flag:

npm publish --access public

Setting package visibility to public for a single package

You can set a single package to pass --access public to every npm publish command that you issue for that package.

  1. On the command line, navigate to the package directory.

    cd /path/to/package
  2. Run the following command:

    npm config set access public

Setting package visibility to public for all packages

You can set all packages to pass --access public to every npm publish command that you issue for that package.

Warning: Setting packages access to public in your global .npmrc will affect all packages you create, including packages in your personal account scope, as well as packages scoped to your organization.

On the command line, run the following command:

npm config set access public --global
