opts for libnpmteam commands

libnpmteam uses npm-registry-fetch. All options are passed through directly to that library, so please refer to its own opts documentation for options that can be passed in.

A couple of options of note for those in a hurry:

  • opts.token - can be passed in and will be used as the authentication token for the registry. For other ways to pass in auth details, see the n-r-f docs.
  • opts.otp - certain operations will require an OTP token to be passed in. If a libnpmteam command fails with err.code === EOTP, please retry the request with {otp: <2fa token>}
  • opts.Promise - If you pass this in, the Promises returned by libnpmteam commands will use this Promise class instead. For example: {Promise: require('bluebird')}

> team.create(team, [opts]) -> Promise

Creates a team named team. Team names use the format @<scope>:<name>, with the @ being optional.

Additionally, opts.description may be passed in to include a description.

await team.create('@npm:cli', {token: 'myregistrytoken'})
// The @npm:cli team now exists.

> team.destroy(team, [opts]) -> Promise

Destroys a team named team. Team names use the format @<scope>:<name>, with the @ being optional.

await team.destroy('@npm:cli', {token: 'myregistrytoken'})
// The @npm:cli team has been destroyed.

> team.add(user, team, [opts]) -> Promise

Adds user to team.

await team.add('zkat', '@npm:cli', {token: 'myregistrytoken'})
// @zkat now belongs to the @npm:cli team.

> team.rm(user, team, [opts]) -> Promise

Removes user from team.

await team.rm('zkat', '@npm:cli', {token: 'myregistrytoken'})
// @zkat is no longer part of the @npm:cli team.

> team.lsTeams(scope, [opts]) -> Promise

Resolves to an array of team names belonging to scope.

await team.lsTeams('@npm', {token: 'myregistrytoken'})

>, [opts]) -> Stream

Returns a stream of teams belonging to scope.

For a Promise-based version of these results, see team.lsTeams().

for await (let team of'@npm', {token: 'myregistrytoken'})) {

// outputs
// npm:cli
// npm:web
// npm:registry
// npm:developers

> team.lsUsers(team, [opts]) -> Promise

Resolves to an array of usernames belonging to team.

For a streamed version of these results, see

await team.lsUsers('@npm:cli', {token: 'myregistrytoken'})

>, [opts]) -> Stream

Returns a stream of usernames belonging to team.

For a Promise-based version of these results, see team.lsUsers().

for await (let user of'@npm:cli', {token: 'myregistrytoken'})) {

// outputs
// iarna
// zkat
