I’ve been asked for this couple of times and I want to share how you can achieve a seamless integration GitHub with Verdaccio. Node.js package managers only allow using one registry when you are running an eg: npm install unless you modify the .npmrc and add some specific configuration, but frankly, we can do better using a proxy.
Docker has been a key part of success for Verdaccio. At the time of this writing, we have more than 4 million image pulls and this number is growing rapidly. The image provides an easy way to use Verdaccio in combination with tools like Kubernetes, Docker Compose or any other container orchestration system, simplifying deployment and integration with existing infrastructure.
This article will describe what has changed, all the improvements and benefits you will enjoy from migrating to the latest version.
It’s not the first time that I’ve heard the following expression “Thanks for creating Verdaccio”, which actually flatters me, but is really hard to explain in a couple of words that I haven’t created Verdaccio. Perhaps I might be responsible for what is Verdaccio today, but that is a different…
Lockfiles on node package manager (npm) clients are not a new topic, yarn broke the node package managers world with a term called determinismproviding a new file generated after install called yarn.lock to pin and freeze dependencies with the objective to avoid inconstancies across multiple installations.
It has been a long, exciting journey since Verdaccio’s community development began, starting initially as a fork of Sinopia. Since the fork, the project has evolved in many ways, making the project’s code base modern, easier to debug, and more straightforward to contribute to by the community!
This article is about why setting up a npm private proxy is a good idea, going through most common questions that I’ve been asked since contributing to sinopia’s fork verdaccio, and how a developer addresses many use cases that made me appreciate how useful it can be set up a local private proxy
