Luna was created with main purpose to provide a flexible and modern UI for npm dependencies management. You can install, update and uninstall packages using a user interface build on latest web technologies.


  • Manage global and local packages
  • Search for new packages
  • Install packages
  • Update packages
  • Uninstall packages
  • Filter packages by name, group and outdated
  • Preview package details (versions, statistics, dependencies and more)
  • Get notifications for missing dependencies or extraneous packages


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
