Node.js - npm-latest

Quickly find the latest version of a package in npm.

Why?

I often forget which package version I need to put as a dependency in my packages. Running npm info [package] and then scrolling up scanning JSON became annoying.

Update:

Thanks to @timoxley for pointing out that a very viable alternative would be to just run:

npm install --save packagename@latest

It has the added bonus of updating your package.json file as well.

Installation

npm install -g npm-latest

Example

npm-latest express

output:

  express: 

    latest: 3.0.0rc2
