Node.js packages

You can configure Buddy to use private modules from the npm registry in your projects. This article will tell you how.

Download login

Log in to the npm locally. The user you’re logging with must have access to the private packages that you want to use:

npm login

Once you do it, display the file contents:

cat ~/.npmrc

Now copy the auth token. You will find it in the file after such string:

//registry.npmjs.org/:_authToken=

Add token to Buddy as environment variable

Go to the Project Options in Buddy. Choose the Environment variables tab and click Add a new variable: Adding token as environmental variable

Add the variable with the value of the acquired token: Adding token as environmental variable

Configure npm

Dependencies are fetched at the moment of executing the npm install command.

If you have private packages in the dependencies, execute:

npm config set //registry.npmjs.org/:_authToken $NPM_AUTH_TOKEN
npm install
