npm-deprecate: Deprecate a version of a package

NAME

npm-deprecate - Deprecate a version of a package

Synopsis

npm deprecate <pkg>[@<version>] <message>

Description

This command will update the npm registry entry for a package, providing a deprecation warning to all who attempt to install it.

It works on version ranges https://semver.npmjs.com/ as well as specific versions, so you can do something like this:

npm deprecate my-thing@"< 0.2.3" "critical bug fixed in v0.2.3"

Note that you must be the package owner to deprecate something. See the owner and adduser help topics.

To un-deprecate a package, specify an empty string ("") for the message argument. Note that you must use double quotes with no space between them to format an empty string.
