npm-star - Mark your favorite packages


npm star [<package-spec>...]

Note: This command is unaware of workspaces.


"Starring" a package means that you have some interest in it. It’s a vaguely positive way to show that you care.

It’s a boolean thing. Starring repeatedly has no additional effect.


There’s also these extra commands to help you manage your favorite packages:


You can also "unstar" a package using npm help unstar

"Unstarring" is the same thing, but in reverse.

Listing stars

You can see all your starred packages using npm help stars



Default: ""

Type: URL

The base URL of the npm registry.


Default: false on windows, true on mac/unix systems with a unicode locale, as defined by the LC_ALL, LC_CTYPE, or LANG environment variables.

Type: Boolean

When set to true, npm uses unicode characters in the tree output. When false, it uses ascii characters instead of unicode glyphs.


Default: null

Type: null or String

This is a one-time password from a two-factor authenticator. It’s needed when publishing or changing package permissions with npm access.

If not set, and a registry response fails with a challenge for a one-time password, npm will prompt on the command line for one.
