Use an npm Registry with npmjs.com
npm client is able to work with only one registry at a time: It is not possible to simultaneously use both npmjs.com and a Space Packages nmp registry. To avoid this limitation, we recommend that you use scoped npm packages. Typically, this npm feature is used to group packages together and separate private and public packages. After you assign
@somescope to a package, this scope will be added to the package name, e.g.
@somescope/somepackagename. If another user or company publishes their own
somepackagename to npmjs.com, there will be no conflicts. An additional feature of scoped packages is the ability to assign scopes to registries. For example, after you assign
@somescope to a particular registry (e.g. a registry in Packages), all packages marked with
@somescope will be published to/installed from this registry only. For other packages, npm will use the default registry (npmjs.com).
To assign a scope to an npm registry
Make sure you are logged in to the desired Packages npm registry.
npm configcommand. For example:npm config set @somescope:registry https://npm.pkg.jetbrains.space/mycompany/p/projectkey/mynpm
After this, all scoped packages will be associated with this registry.
To publish a scoped package to an npm registry
Make sure the package you want to publish has a scope assigned. For example, if you need to assign a scope in an existing package, open the corresponding
package.jsonand add the scope to
name. For example:
"name": "@somescope/myfirstnpmpackage". If you are creating a new package, you can use the
npm init --scope=somescopecommand.
Open the directory containing the package.
To install such a package, run:
