And of course nodeneeds itself is open source with a public repository on GitHub.


nodeneeds requires Node.js v8+ to run. You can fork/clone this project and customize it for your needs. We recommened using nodeneeds-cli, the command line tool to bootstrap a new npm bundle from this project. Use it to provide the details of your new npm package and let the cli prepare the project for you. Once your project ( lets call it mynodepackage ) is ready do the following:

Install the dependencies and devDependencies and start building your package.

$ cd mynodepackage
$ yarn
$ yarn lint
$ yarn test
$ yarn test:coverage
$ yarn build

To publish your package

$ yarn release


  • Update dependencies latest versions.
