The npm blog has been discontinued.
npm Weekly, #7
Your npm news for the week… also available via email.
What’s new in the CLI
firstname.lastname@example.org unexpectedly fixed many of the issues with
npm update -g simply by making
--depth=0 the default for
npm outdated. Yay, serendipity!
Check out our new roadmap
As we close in on
npm@3, the CLI team has put together a roadmap for the upcoming version and future work. They’re updating it with their current priorities, so check it out if you want to follow along.
Using jQuery plugins
Last week we showed you how to publish your jQuery plugins to npm. This time we’ll show you how to use plugins that others have published, even if the plugin isn’t a CommonJS module.
Modules we love
nock is a tool for intercepting HTTP traffic. It exposes a very simple API for mocking one or many requests and returning custom headers, status codes, response body, etc. It also has support for chaining multiple calls, simulating delays, and disabling network traffic entirely. The npm team uses nock in many of our codebases to keep our test suites fast and isolated.
