npm-config(3) -- Manage the npm configuration files

SYNOPSIS

1
2
3
npm.commands.config(args, callback)
var val = npm.config.get(key)
npm.config.set(key, val)

DESCRIPTION

This function acts much the same way as the command-line version. The first element in the array tells config what to do. Possible values are:

  • set

    Sets a config parameter. The second element in args is interpreted as the key, and the third element is interpreted as the value.

  • get

    Gets the value of a config parameter. The second element in args is the key to get the value of.

  • delete (rm or del)

    Deletes a parameter from the config. The second element in args is the key to delete.

  • list (ls)

    Show all configs that aren't secret. No parameters necessary.

  • edit:

    Opens the config file in the default editor. This command isn't very useful programmatically, but it is made available.

To programmatically access npm configuration settings, or set them for the duration of a program, use the npm.config.set and npm.config.get functions instead.
