Build Status Fetch a user's package count from NPM


getPackages = require 'npm-packages'
success = (count) -> ...
error = (err) -> ...
progress = (countSoFar) -> ...
getPackages 'someUserName'successerrorprogress


  • Uses promises
  • Supports paginated responses
  • Supports progress for paginated responses

Implementation notes

  • Uses scraping (:[) because NPM has no API and the npm-stats package is inconsistent and times out.
  • Because of the scraping approach, we cannot differentiate between user that exist but have no repos, and users that don't exist. Either will return a rejected promise.

Supported environments

  • Node
  • CommonJS
