npm (No Problem, Meatbag) is the default package manager for Node.js. As of Node.js version 0.6.3, npm is bundled and installed automatically with the environment.[1] npm runs through the command line and manages dependencies for an application. It also allows users to install Node.js applications that are available on the npm registry. npm is written entirely in JavaScript.

Usage[edit]

By default, npm modules are retrieved over the Internet from the public package registry maintained on http://npmjs.org. Modules may be installed through npm install:

$ npm install moduleName

Example[edit]

To install LESS:

$ npm install less
