Company description

npm is the package manager for JavaScript, and the world’s largest software registry. Every month, more than 4 million developers use npm to find, share, and reuse code — over 250,000 packages, downloaded over one billion times per week — and assemble it in powerful new ways.

npm, Inc. maintains the open source registry as a free service; develops tools and services to help teams share and distribute their code; and brings open source workflows and tools into the world’s largest companies.

The JavaScript community’s long-term success includes the success of the open source Node.js and npm projects, and requires taking open source to new places. Our goal is empowering every developer to build amazing things.
