Join Ray Villalobos for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know, part of Learning NPM the Node Package Manager (2015).
- Up and running with NPM, the Node.js Package Manager, is not a beginner course. It's meant to be a fast and practical introduction to working with NPM using the Terminal. I expect you to know how to work with your file system, have some experience creating web projects, and know how to work with the Terminal application on a Mac, and something like a bash on a PC. If you need help understanding Terminal commands, then check out Unix for Mac OS X Users with Kevin Skoglund. Now I covered some of this material in lots of other courses, including my Web Project Workflows with Gulp.js, Git, and Browserify.
So for a more integrated look at how NPM works in a workflow environment, check out that course. As I mentioned, you'll probably want to take this course as a prerequisite to other things in the library. So if you're ready to learn about NPM, then let's get started with Up and Running with NPM, the Node.js Package Manager.
