The npm blog has been discontinued.
Updates from the npm team are now published on the GitHub Blog and the GitHub Changelog.
How do you choose packages?
As of the moment I’m posting this, there are 136,525 packages (no, wait, 136,544 packages) available on npm. That’s a whole lot of packages.
One of the things we’ll be working on this year is making it easier to find the packages that are useful to you. We’re wondering, how do you choose the ones that you want to use?
