<!-- AUTOGENERATED USAGE DESCRIPTIONS -->
Note: This command is unaware of workspaces.
Search the registry for packages matching the search terms. npm
performs a linear, incremental, lexically-ordered search through package
metadata for all files in the registry. If your terminal has color
support, it will further highlight the matches in the results. This can
be disabled with the config item color
Additionally, using the --searchopts and
paired with more search terms will include and exclude further patterns.
The main difference between --searchopts and the standard search terms
is that the former does not highlight results in the output and you can
use them more fine-grained filtering. Additionally, you can add both of
these to your config to change default search filtering behavior.
Search also allows targeting of maintainers in search results, by
their npm username with =.
If a term starts with /, then it's interpreted as a regular
ignore a trailing /. (Note you must escape or quote many regular
expression characters in most shells.)
