Luna - npm management through a modern UI. Built with Electron 🌺


npm desktop manager for handling npm dependencies. Supported platforms: OS X Windows and Linux.

Build Status CodeFactor PRs Welcome NPM Version FOSSA Status License: GPL3.0 Active Development


Luna was created with main purpose to provide a flexible and modern UI for npm dependencies management. Furthermore I wanted to create a project with the latest web technologies combined in one application.


  • Manage global and local packages
  • Search npm for new packages
  • Install packages
  • Uninstall packages
  • Update existing packages
  • Filter packages by type or outdated
  • Preview package details (versions, statistics, dependencies and more)
  • Get notifications for missing dependencies or extraneous dependencies
  • Reporting (audit/doctor)


How it works

The Renderer Process architecture:

  • Action (Event) driven nature
  • The IO Management, Business Logic Management and Predictable Application State Management processors (middlewares) are subscribers of the application action stream.
  • The IO Management and Business Logic Management are consumers and producers of actions.
  • The Predictable State Management is just a consumer of actions
  • The views are listeners of the predictable state and they are re rendered whenever the predictable state changes and they produce actions upon the user interaction (clicks)


Install application's dependencies:

npm install

Start the application

npm start

Start the development server and run the application in development mode:

npm run dev


All binaries of the latest version are uploaded to the releases
