Node.js - npm-latest

Quickly find the latest version of a package in npm.

js-standard-style

Why?

Sometimes I want to know if a single package needs to be updated. Also, I'm a package creatin' fool: https://www.npmjs.com/~jprichardson - I need to know quickly if a package name is taken.

Update 2015-03-29:

Support config registry in ~/.npmrc file,more on registry-url

Installation

npm install -g npm-latest

Example

npm-latest express

output:

  express:

    latest: 3.0.0rc2
    last updated: Fri Aug 03 2012 15:33:05 GMT-0500 (CDT)
