npm-init - Interactively create a package.json file
npm init [-f|--force|-y|--yes]
DESCRIPTIONThis will ask you a bunch of questions, and then write a package.json for you.
It attempts to make reasonable guesses about what you want things to be set to, and then writes a package.json file with the options you've selected.
If you already have a package.json file, it'll read that first, and default to the options in there.
It is strictly additive, so it does not delete options from your package.json without a really good reason to do so.
- Default: none
- Type: String
- npm help 5 package.json
- npm help version
- npm help 7 scope
