[node.js] Nodejs npm show latest version of a module


Answers

If you're looking for the current and the latest versions of all your installed packages, you can also use:

npm outdated

Question

How do I use npm to show the latest version of a module? I am expecting something like npm --lastest express to print out v3.0.0.




You can see all the version of a module with npm view. eg: To list all versions of bootstrap including beta.

npm view bootstrap versions

But if the version list is very big it will truncate. An --json option will print all version including beta versions as well.

npm view bootstrap versions --json

If you want to list only the stable versions not the beta then use singular version

npm view bootstrap@* versions

Or

npm view bootstrap@* versions --json

And, if you want to see only latest version then here you go.

npm view bootstrap version
