If I get a 1000 likes then I’ll make a tutorial about the same, as to how I made this package.
If you don’t know what npm is then you should probably read about it before reading this article. This article is going to touch on recommendations and advanced concepts for those experienced with it. If you’re not, don’t worry, it’s not that complicated. I can recommend reading this article to get you started.

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.

Sometimes, when we try to install a npm package using the
npm install <package-name> command we will see the node version compatibility errors like this in our terminal.
express requires node version >= 7.0.
To solve it, we can install an older version of the npm package by specifying a version number after the package name.
npm install firstname.lastname@example.org
This above command will install an express version
You can also install it globally by adding a
-g flag to the command.
npm install -g email@example.com
