Create a package.json like a champion

NPM Version NPM Downloads JS Standard Style GitHub Sponsor

This is a fully featured package.json scaffolding tool. It goes above and beyond the basic npm init by supporting (almost) all of the keys you can set in a package.json. It can be used as a simple cli tool, or inside your other package scaffolding tools.

NOTE: This is a work in progress, more to come on docs and there are some missing options at the moment. See here for missing fields.

$ npm init package-json
