package-bundle allows you to download npm packages in their original tar.gz format including their dependencies, and saves them as an archive in the npm folder structure.
Packages can then be imported into a package manager such as Artifactory, and then used in an offline environment.
Download the package using:
npm install -g package-bundle
Or if using yarn
yarn global add package-bundle
You can then use it by running
package-bundle or the alias
This command will download "request" and all its dependencies and create an archive package-bundle-.tgz containing all the tgz's required.
You can also download multiple packages by passing in a list:
package-bundle request bluebird
If no packages are entered then it will check for a package.json file, and read in the dependencies.
Usage: package-bundle|pb [packages...] [options] where <packages> are in the format: [@scope/]<pkg>[@<version>] If no packages are provided it will check for a package.json Create a bundle of packages including their dependencies in archive format Options: -V, --version output the version number -d, --no-dev ignore dev dependencies in package.json -o, --no-optional ignore optional dependencies in package.json -D, --dev-recursive include all dev dependencies recursively -O, --optional-recursive include all optional dependencies recursively -f, --flat save in a flat file structure, instead of individual folders -z, --no-archive leave dependencies in folder, and don't archive -x, --no-cache don't use cache file to avoid repeat downloads -F, --out-file <file> output file name -a, --all-versions download all versions of specified packages -A, --all-versions-recursive download all versions of specified packages and dependencies -c, --concurrency <n> number of requests to make at the same time - default=50 -r, --registry <registry> specify a registry -p, --proxy <url> proxy url --basic-auth <hash> Basic auth hash --auth-token <token> Auth token --insecure ignore TLS (SSL) certificate errors -h, --help output usage information
- Download node modules as tgz which can then be imported into package manager or stored in repo
- Hash check to make sure download is correct
- Cache previous downloads, so you only download dependencies once
- Download all package dependencies
- Maintains npm registry folder structure to upload to package manager
- Specify version of package
- Read packages from package.json
Importing into Artifactory
Once you have downloaded the packages you want, you can import the archive into an Artifactory npm repository. To do this, select the deploy option on the repo, and upload the whole archive containing all packages. Select the option to "Deploy as Bundle Artifact", which will keep the folder structure in the archive.
Once this is done, you should now be able to npm install from Artifactory, and it should contain all the dependencies that you just downloaded.
