Fuzzy search npm modules with fzf



demo animation



npm-fzf, short-named npf, provides fuzzy search for some most commonly used npm commands with fzf, i.e. npm ls, npm search, npm run, creating a more fulfilling develop experience with npm.

Requirements

Must: npf requires Node 8 for runtime or above.

Highly Recommended: fzf is used heavily by npf. If fzf is not installed, npf will default to a much less capable sibling, node-fzf - fzf's implementation in Node.

CLI

$ npm install -g npm-fzf

Usage

Usage: npf [options] [command]

Fuzzy search npm modules with fzf

Options:
  -v, --version       output the version number
  -d, --details       include details to each dependency, but disable the fuzzy mode
  -P, --no-preview    disable the default fzf preview mode
  -F, --no-fuzzy      disable the default fuzzy mode and resort to stdout
  -h, --help          output usage information

Commands:
  list|ls [options]   npm list with fzf
  info [module]       npm info with fzf
  run                 npm run with fzf
  search <module...>  npm search with fzf

npf search

Usage: search [options] <module...>

npm search with fzf

Options:
  -h, --help  output usage information

  Examples:
    npf search <module...>, fuzzy search for npm modules with preview
    npf search <module...> --no-preview, fuzzy search for npm modules without preview
    npf search <module...> --no-fuzzy, plain search for npm modules
$ npf search express
$ npf search express react

npf list

Usage: list|ls [options]

npm list with fzf

Options:
  -l, --local   list local dependencies, which is also the default feature
  -g, --global  list global modules
  -t, --time    show the latest global installs
  -h, --help    output usage information

  Examples:
    npf ls, a fzf list with preview of local dependencies
    npf ls -t, a fzf list of latest global installs
    npf ls -t --no-fuzzy, a normal list of latest global installs
    npf ls -g --no-preview, a fuzzy list with no preview of global installs
    npf ls -g --details, a normal, detailed list of global installs

Local dependencies

$ npf ls

Global modules

$ npf ls -g

Recent global installs

A quick refresher on what the heck it's installed/upgraded globally in the recent past

$ npf ls -t

Turn off preview mode

Preview mode uses fzf --preview underneath and is turned on in most cases by default. You can also opt for --no-preview to turn off the default preview mode.

$ npf ls -t --no-preview
$ npf ls -g --no-preview
$ npf ls -l --no-preview

Turn off fuzzy mode

Fuzzy mode is by default on. You can also opt for --no-fuzzy to turn it off.

$ npf ls -t --no-fuzzy
$ npf ls -g --no-fuzzy

Details flag

Applied to both local dependencies and global installs

$ npf ls --details
$ npf ls -g --details

npf run

Usage: run [options]

npm run with fzf

Options:
  -h, --help  output usage information

  Examples:
    npf run, execute npm scripts with fzf
    npf run --no-fuzzy, execute npm scripts without fzf
$ npf run

npf info

Usage: info [options] [module]

npm info with fzf

Options:
  -h, --help  output usage information

  Examples:
    npf info [module], a fuzzy list with preview of a module's dependencies fetched from NPM registry
    npf info [module] --no-preview, a fuzzy list of a module's dependencies fetched from NPM registry
    npf info [module] --no-fuzzy, a list of a module's dependencies fetched from NPM registry

npf info fetches the module's latest version by default, unless a version is specified.

It defaults to the current folder if no argument provided.

$ npf info npm-fzf

API

npf uses npmlist's API for getting modules' dependencies. npf itself does not expose any API.

$ npm install @hankchanocd/npmlist

Tests

To perform unit tests and integration tests, simply run npm test. (Need Help)
