    in-publish

    For background, see npm#10074.

    Detect if we were run as a result of npm publish. This is intended to allow you to easily have prepublish lifecycle scripts that don't run when you run npm install.

    $ npm install --save-dev in-publish
    in-publish@1.0.0 node_modules/in-publish
    

    Then edit your package.json to have:

      "scripts"{
        "prepublish": "in-publish && thing-I-dont-want-on-dev-install || not-in-publish"
      }

    Now when you run:

    $ npm install
    

    Then thing-I-dont-want-on-dev-install won't be run, but...

    $ npm publish
    

    And thing-I-dont-want-on-dev-install will be run.

    It's worth noting that the prepublish lifecycle is ALSO called when you build a tarball, so:

    $ npm pack
    

    Will call your prepublish lifecycle, but with the example above, thing-I-dont-want-on-dev-install won't be run.

    If you want this, you can use another helper included here:

      "scripts"{
        "prepublish": "not-in-install && thing-I-dont-want-on-dev-install || in-install"
      }

    The above will run your thing-I-dont-want-on-dev-install on publish and on pack but not on install.
