all-the-package-names

all-the-package-names

A list of all the public package names on npm.

Installation

npm install all-the-package-names --save

Usage

The module exports a big flat array of package names:

const names = require("all-the-package-names")
 
// Most-depended-on names are first. See what's popular! 
names.slice(0,5)
// [ 
//   'mocha', 
//   'chai', 
//   'lodash', 
//   'grunt', 
//   'eslint' 
// ] 
 
names.includes('superagent')
// => true 
 
// Check if a given package name exists 
names.includes('crazy-new-package-name')
// => false 
 
names.length
// => 286289 
 
names.filter(name => name.includes('banana'))
// => [ 'banana', 'banana-banana', 'banana-split', ...] 
 
// Note: This example requires node 4 or greater because it uses 
// const, arrow functions, and the `includes` array/string helper. 
 

CLI Usage

You can also use it on the command line. Newline-delimited names are piped to STDOUT:

npm i -g all-the-package-names
all-the-package-names | grep spell

Tests

npm install
npm test
