get-repo-package-json

Fetch a GitHub repository's package.json file using the GitHub API

Installation

npm install get-repo-package-json --save

Usage

The basics:

const getPackage = require('get-repo-package-json')

getPackage('segmentio/nightmare').then(pkg => { console.log(pkg) })

To fetch a specific commit/branch/tag, use a long-form URL:

await getPackage('https://github.com/monkey/business/tree/experiment')

Or specify a ref option:

await getPackage('monkey/business', {ref: '0e783153885ed78f71d138085a77644ff8e59aa1'})

To see more supported repository string formats, see the github-url-to-object demo.

API

This package exports a single function that returns a promise.

getPackage(repository, [options])

  • repository (string) - Any string supported by github-url-to-object.
  • options (optional object)
    • access_token - GitHub API key. Can also be set as a GITHUB_ACCESS_TOKEN environment variable.
    • ref - The name of the commit/branch/tag. Defaults to nothing, so the GitHub API will return the repo's default branch.

Tests

npm install
npm test
