It happened too many times that I forgot to add
--save when installing node modules. Is there a way to append this option by default? So that whenever I type
npm install <package> the package is added to dependencies in
Here is Solutions:
We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first solution because it is tested & true solution that will 100% work for you.
From npm5 , npm will save by default . https://github.com/npm/npm/issues/5108
I found out that
npm has configuration flags. Setting
save=true does exactly what I need. You can add it to
.npmrc file (in user’s home directory) or invoke a command:
npm config set save=true
make an alias inside
alias npmi="npm install --save" //shorter version alias npmi="npm i -S"
then just type, so that it will automatically save it to package json
same thing, make alias, read more here https://superuser.com/a/49194
doskey npmi=npm i -S $*
Note: Use and implement solution 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
