npm Documentation


This is the documentation for https://docs.npmjs.com/.

This repository contains the content for our documentation site, and the GitHub Actions workflows that generate the site itself.

Quick start

  1. npm install to download gatsby, our theme, and the dependencies
  2. npm run develop: starts the test server at http://localhost:8000.
  3. Update the content - it's Mdx, which is like markdown - in the content directory.
  4. Review your content at http://localhost:8000. (Gatsby watches the filesystem and will reload your content changes immediately.)
  5. Once you're happy, commit it and open a pull request at https://github.com/npm/documentation.
  6. A CI workflow run will publish your PR to a GitHub Preview Page.
  7. Once the content is reviewed, merge the pull request. That will deploy the site.

The gatsby theme used here is located in the [theme/](./theme) directory. It is a variation of doctocat with some theme changes for npm's design language and additional components to support multiple versions of the CLI documentation.
