My reason:

My suggestion comes inspired by #142 and #138

The CLI might reside in:

  • Mixed with the current verdaccio cli
  • Create an external and new tool verdaccio-cli


  • How to this will affect on running instances without corrupt tarballs?
  • How this will work with future pluggable storages
  • User management is hot topic, but I'm not sure how this will work properly


  • Cache clean
  • Integrity check
  • Backup
  • Restore Backup
  • User management?

Clean cache

Clean cache might be a high intensive task base on the local storage size.

Normal clean cache

verdaccio-cli cache clean 

Clean specific package

verdaccio-cli cache clean @scope/package

Clean cache for specific package + version

verdaccio-cli cache clean @scope/package@1.0.0

Clean cache for specific version

verdaccio-cli cache clean @scope/package@1.0.0

Clean cache specifying a config file

verdaccio-cli cache clean -c /path/config.yaml @scope/package

Backup and Restore

Backup and restore a backup, useful for offline environments

A complete backup

verdaccio-cli backup

Only cached

verdaccio-cli backup --ignore-private

Only private

verdaccio-cli backup --ignore-local

Restore backup

verdaccio-cli restore --path /path/backup.tar.gz

Check Integrity

Check the integrity of tarballs

Package check

verdaccio-cli check @scope/package@1.0.0

User management ⚠️

Add/Remove users (this part is just a suggestion and will require a discussion) and perhaps only useful with the default auth plugin.

Add user

verdaccio-cli user-add 


verdaccio-cli user-rm

I think this will require a lot of thoughts, please comment and let me know what do you think.

Are these function (backup, clean, restore) already existing and these are just CLI commands to get at them? I'm not seeing where these things exist in the current codebase but maybe I'm just missing something. Have hit some gross invalid tar header errors and I'd be happy to solve them with a proper tool rather than some bash nonsense.

@arsdehnel this is just a Feature Request, none of this does no exist in the code base yet.

@juanpicado FYI: I have created a verdaccio-cli, for now, it is in my name p3x-verdaccio-cli. I would not reserve the name, but if you like it, we can move to verdaccio main repo.
