    Typescript NPM Package Starter

    My template for creating npm packages using typescript.

    • TS to JS
    • Testing via Jest, includes coverage
    • ESLint
    • Ignore files to ensure minimal code is stored/shipped

    NPM link: @el3um4s/typescript-npm-package-starter

    Getting Started

    To create a new project based on this template using degit:

    npx degit el3um4s/typescript-npm-package-starter

    Then install the dependencies with

    npm install

    Now update the name field in package.json with your desired package name. Then update the homepage field in package.json. And finally add your code.

    Build the package


    npm run build

    Test the package

    You can test the code with Jest

    npm test

    You can find the test coverage in coverage/lcov-report/index.html.

    Check dependencies

    You can check and upgrade dependencies to the latest versions, ignoring specified versions. with npm-check-updates:

    npm run check-updates

    You can also use npm run check-updates:minor to update only patch and minor.

    Instead npm run check-updates:patch only updates patch.


    First commit the changes to GitHub. Then login to your NPM account (If you don’t have an account you can do so on https://www.npmjs.com/signup)

    npm login

    Then run publish:

    npm publish

    If you're using a scoped name use:

    npm publish --access public

    Bumping a new version

    To update the package use:

    npm version patch

    and then

    npm publish

    Install and use the package

    To use the package in a project:

    npm i @el3um4s/typescript-npm-package-starter

    and then in a file:

    import { ciao } from "@el3um4s/typescript-npm-package-starter";
    const b = ciao("mondo");
    console.log(b); // Ciao Mondo


    npm i @el3um4s/typescript-npm-package-starter
