I’ve been a web developer for over 12 years now and I use so many different npm packages every day throughout both my day job and my side projects, but I had never made my own npm package before. I decided that I wanted to see what it’s all about and how you go about creating your own package and deploying it to npm.
I enjoy using the Bulma frontend framework to build user interfaces with. It’s simple to use, responsive and has many sass variables that allow you to easily customise your design. For a recent project I wrote some simple css to create a block style list to make it stand out a bit more than a bullet point list.
This gave me an idea to create a simple package that allowed users to create a block style list easily, but also make use of the Bulma sass variables so they could customise it themselves.
After doing a bit of reading I started out by creating a new folder, changing into that folder and then running
npm init. This guided me through the process of creating the package.json file including the name, version, keywords and licence.
I then did a bit more research and found that it was a good idea to add the homepage and bugs tags to the package.json as well, especially if you are going to publish the package to npm. This allows users to navigate directly to the repo on GitHub to look at the code, as well as check out the issue log. I created a new repo on GitHub and updated the homepage and bugs section to point to the freshly created repo.
Finally, I then added the author details and I was ready to start developing. One thing to note with npm is that you need a public facing email address.

Today, we’re going to go beyond a boring ‘hello world’ example and into something that’s a bit more useful. After creating ‘shadowizard’ (a simple npm package for adding shadows to certain elements), I’m going to show you how to publish it to GitHub as well as NPM, for others to use.
Let’s get started!

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.
