As a package owner or maintainer, you can transfer ownership of a package you no longer wish to maintain to another trusted npm user using either the npm website or the command line.
For more information on how npm support handles package name disputes between users, you can refer to npm's package name dispute policy.
Note: You cannot transfer a scoped package to another user account or organization, because a package's scope is the user account or organization name. You will need to create a new package in the new scope.
To transfer a package you own or maintain to another user, follow these steps:
Navigate to the package page for the package you want to transfer, replacing
<your-package-name> with the name of your package:
On the package Admin tab, under "Maintainers", enter the npm username of the new maintainer.
To remove yourself as a maintainer, under the maintainers list, click the "x" next to your username.
To transfer a package to another npm user using the CLI, run the
npm owner add and
rm commands in order, replacing
<their-username> with the other user's npm username,
<your-username> with your npm username, and
<package-name> with the package you want to transfer:
npm owner add <their-username> <package-name> npm owner rm <your-username> <package-name>
If you have two-factor authentication enabled for writes, add a one-time password to the command,
--otp=123456 (where 123456 is the code from your authenticator application).
npm owner add <their-username> <package-name> --otp=123456 npm owner rm <your-username> <package-name> --otp=123456
