Private npm Registry -- Nodejitsu

npm <3s you. So does Nodejitsu. We recently launched simple, hosted private npm registries and we need your help to make them better!

npm is the place for the world’s JavaScript. That includes your proprietary, production code. So let us know what you want. And we’ll make it a reality!

Help us make our hosted private npm registry better!

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. .npmignore isn't interpreted correctly anmore

    After deployed today all icons where missing. My .npmignore looked like this (ignore *, explicitly un-ignore the files that shall be deployed):
    https://bitbucket.org/panzi/greattune-player/src/bef364cd76d8506d9a659cbc1348eddb6fb8dab8/.npmignore?at=default

    In past this worked but now the images folder was not deployed (everything else was). I changed it to this (un-ignore everything in images folder):
    https://bitbucket.org/panzi/greattune-player/src/5c561fc7e9d84bfe10a065f521418ae22a6a01ad/.npmignore?at=default

    npm pack still creates an archive that contains exactly what I specify (un-ignore).

    So now also the development artifacts are deployed (Makefile, svg images and separate images that will be compiled into sprites.png). It's kinda ugly but doesn't really matter.

        • Fix native code compilation

          Make native code compilation be something that nobody ever notices, because it never breaks. Also, it shouldn't write anything to the log unless it goes wrong.

          • Finish modularisation of npm client

            This would allow much easier systems for automation, caching and experimentation. https://github.com/ForbesLindesay/npm-fetch is a long way along the way, but still needs an investment of time and energy.

              • Provide a transparent cache to run on my local network

                All publish requests should still go to the public NPM, but all GET requests should be cached within the organisation so that only one person needs to get each resource from the public internet.

                • Login to *.npm.nodejitsu.com with Github

                  Right now you have to login with your npm username and password, which not everyone has since not everyone publishes modules.

                  Sign-in with Github would simplify this since it has a much larger user base.

                  • Public code search or static-analysis

                    All of the packages in the public npm are also stored in Manta, making it relatively straight-forward to index them with a static-analysis tool like esprima.

                    We could do this for private packages as well without depending on Manta.

                    We could even expose this feature publicly!

                    • Generate licensing compliance report from private modules.

                      Private modules are your applications and their own private dependencies. For those compliance in their organization they want to know what Open Source licenses they are depending on.

                      • Notify your users via email when you add them

                        No notifications at all right now in the front-end at *.npm.nodejitsu.com. This would notify users on your team once and only once.

                        • Sync your Github teams.

                          There is only one team right now in a private npm registry. For this we would sync all your teams from Github.
