.gitignore files has the following rule:
Which seems to be working fine with Git (and github) and ignoring the following folders:
But when publishing to npm, those folders are not ignored and are being published.
Any way to exclude them from npm?
You may want
.npmignore to keep files out of your package.
npm-folders, Global install (with -g ): puts stuff in /usr/local or wherever node is installed. Packages are dropped into the node_modules folder under the prefix . to the sensible root of your package, even if you happen to have cd ed into some other folder. Starting at the $PWD, npm will walk up the folder tree checking for a folder that Make npm ignore folders starting by certain prefix Right now my .gitignore files has the following rule: demos/test** Which seems to be working fine with Git (and github) and ignoring the following folders: ./demos/test-whatever/ ./demos/test/ But

Other (see below for feature requests): What's going wrong? When doing: npm install <module_name> --prefix path\to\package.json --save the package installs, but it's NOT saved as a dependency in the package.json.
Create a .npmignore file in your root directory and add your
demos/test** ignore rule to this file. For reference:
npm-prefix, DESCRIPTION§. Print the local prefix to standard out. This is the closest parent directory to contain a package.json file or node_modules directory, unless -g is When the global flag is set, npm installs things into this prefix. When it is not set, it uses the root of the current package, or the current working directory if not in a package already. Node Modules. Packages are dropped into the node_modules folder under the prefix.
Resolving EACCES permissions errors when installing packages , If you see an EACCES error when you try to install a package globally, you can either: Reinstall npm with a node version manager (recommended),. or. Manually On the command line, in your home directory, create a directory for global installations: mkdir ~/.npm- new directory path: npm config set prefix '~/.npm-global'. But instead of going to parent folder, npm creating folder with .. name and client inside. And trying to run npm install there. And trying to run npm install there. And installation fails because package.json is not there.

Please make sure that your file(s) referenced in bin starts with #! Delete the node_modules folder, then re-run npm i (this is short for npm install). npm will re-install Underscore v1.9.1, even though we just saw that v1.9.2 is available.
npm-publish, If both files exist and a file is ignored by .gitignore but not by .npmignore then it will <tarball> : A url or file path to a gzipped tar archive containing a single folder package with the given tag, such that `npm install @ ` will install this version. A lot of packages have one or more executable files that they’d like to install into the PATH. npm makes this pretty easy (in fact, it uses this feature to install the “npm” executable.) To use this, supply a bin field in your package.json which is a map of command name to local file name.
