npm-config - Manage the npm configuration files

npm gets its config settings from the command line, environment variables, npmrc files, and in some cases, the package.json file.

See npm help npmrc for more information about the npmrc files.

See npm help config(7) for a more thorough explanation of the mechanisms involved, and a full list of config options available.

The npm config command can be used to update and edit the contents of the user and global npmrc files.


Config supports the following sub-commands:


npm config set key=value [key=value...]
npm set key=value [key=value...]

Sets each of the config keys to the value provided.

If value is omitted, then it sets it to an empty string.

Note: for backwards compatibility, npm config set key value is supported as an alias for npm config set key=value.


npm config get [key ...]
npm get [key ...]

Echo the config value(s) to stdout.

If multiple keys are provided, then the values will be prefixed with the key names.

If no keys are provided, then this command behaves the same as npm config list.


npm config list

Show all the config settings. Use -l to also show defaults. Use --json to show the settings in json format.


npm config delete key [key ...]

Deletes the specified keys from all configuration files.


npm config edit

Opens the config file in an editor. Use the --global flag to edit the global config.
