Understanding npm

Visualization


npm is the default package manager for Node.js. It was initially created to help developers manage dependencies for their JavaScript applications. Born as an open source project in 2009, npm features a package registry and client that enables developers to consume and distribute open source code.

Since its creation, the role of npm has expanded to fulfill the broader needs of the JavaScript and Node.js developer community to include management of front-end web applications, mobile applications and other JavaScript development tools and frameworks. Today, the npm project and registry is hosted and managed as a free service by npm, Inc, supporting more than a billion downloads a month.

This visualization is intended to help you understand the role and scope of npm.
