Preventing The Next NPM Virus Outbreak

Doing npm install seems like second nature these days for developers. But did you know that without proper attention and auditing of npm packages, the next time we unknowingly do npm i you could also be installing malicious scripts?

Is NPM Virus Free?

We know that npm packages are maintained by third party actors. This can be a single developer, a team of developers or a super large corporation.

NPM in itself is very reliable. But does NPM guarantee you that any package that you install will be virus free? Unfortunately not.

So these days, it is not uncommon to hear some developers foreseeing a day in which a successful virus attack will spread through millions of machines through NPM.

Sorry if I’m the first person to tell you: NPM it’s not virus free 🤦🏼‍♂️.

NPM Install and NPM CI: In What Aspect They Differ

Nodejs web development has achieved such a huge acclamation all over the world just because of its large ecosystem of libraries known as NPM modules. It is the largest software package library in the world, with over 500,000+ packages. Each time a Command Line Interface (CLI) for npm comes as an add-on with Nodejs installation which allows developers to connect with packages locally on their machine.

The idea of npm modules had come with some technical advancement in package management like reusable components, with easy installation via an online repository, with version and dependency management.

In general,NPM is a default package manager for every Nodejs development project. Npm eases the installing and updating dependencies processes. A dependency list on npmjs even provides you with the installation command, so that you can simply copy and paste in the terminal to initiate installation procedures.

All npm users have an advantage of a new install command called “npm ci(i.e. npm continuous integration)”. These commands provide enormous improvements to both the performance and reliability of default builds for continuous integration processes. In turn, it enables a consistent and fast experience for developers using continuous integration in their workflow.

In npm install, it reads the package.json to generate a list of dependencies and uses package-lock.json to know the exact version of these dependencies to install. If the dependency is found in package-lock.jso, it will be added by npm install.

Whereas here, the npm ci (continuous integration) installs dependencies from package-lock.json directly and use up package.json just to verify that there are no mismatched versions exists. If any dependencies mismatching versions, it will show an error.

Laravel API and React Next JS frontend development - 28

In this video, I wanted to touch upon the functionality of adding Chapters inside a Course. The idea was to not think much and start the development and pick up things as they come.

There are places where I get stuck and trying to find answers to it up doing what every developer does - Google and get help. I hope this will help you understand the flow and also how developers debug while doing development.
