Today, npm released a set of features that I’m really excited about: Private Packages for Organizations.
This release allows teams to use private npm packages more effectively. It’s intended for businesses that manage developer teams, with varying permissions and multiple projects.
A big part of the motivation to start a company around this project was that people using npm at work wanted to be able to manage teams and control access to private code. We got a lot of feedback from the early adopters of private packages for individuals, and even more from our beta testers who’ve been banging on this stuff for the last few months as it’s come together.
The team at npm has worked hard on this release, and we look forward to feedback and suggestions from the community. Now that it’s live, we’ll be continuing to improve and polish it as we see how more people use it. Contact us and tell us how we’re doing :)
