npm-help - Get help on npm


npm help <term> [<terms..>]

alias: hlep

Note: This command is unaware of workspaces.


If supplied a topic, then show the appropriate documentation page.

If the topic does not exist, or if multiple terms are provided, then npm will run the help-search command to find a match. Note that, if help-search finds a single subject, then it will run help on that topic, so unique matches are equivalent to specifying a topic name.



Default: "man" on Posix, "browser" on Windows

Type: String

The program to use to view help content.

Set to "browser" to view html help content in the default web browser.
