npm-search(1) Search for packages


npm search [--long] [search terms ...]
npm s [search terms ...]
npm se [search terms ...]


Search the registry for packages matching the search terms.

If a term starts with /, then it's interpreted as a regular expression. A trailing / will be ignored in this case. (Note that many regular expression characters must be escaped or quoted in most shells.)



Default: false
Type: Boolean

Display full package descriptions and other long text across multiple lines. When disabled (default) search results are truncated to fit neatly on a single line. Modules with extremely long names will fall on multiple lines.
