Happy Valentine's Day, Package Publishers!


Package publishers are the people who make the npm registry the largest (and awesomest?!) package ecosystem in the world (universe?!). Today we are kicking off a campaign to show ya’ll a little love.

Here’s how it works:

To everyone who has published a package, be it big, small, popular, or only used by you- THANK YOU SO MUCH for contributing to the npm ecosystem. We’d be nothing without you, and we’re glad you are here <3

Want to publish your first package this week? Awesome. Learn more about how to with this doc.
