       npm-publish - Publish a package


         npm publish [<tarball>|<folder>] [--tag <tag>] [--access <public|restricted>] [--otp otpcode]

         Publishes '.' if no argument supplied
         Sets tag 'latest' if no --tag specified


       Publishes  a package to the registry so that it can be installed by name. All files in the
       package directory are included if no local .gitignore or .npmignore file exists.  If  both
       files  exist  and  a  file  is ignored by .gitignore but not by .npmignore then it will be
       included.  See npm help 7 npm-developers for  full  details  on  what's  included  in  the
       published package, as well as details on how the package is built.

       By default npm will publish to the public registry. This can be overridden by specifying a
       different default registry or using a npm help 7 npm-scope in the name  (see  npm  help  5

       · <folder>: A folder containing a package.json file

       · <tarball>: A url or file path to a gzipped tar archive containing a single folder with a
         package.json file inside.

       · [--tag <tag>] Registers the published package with the given tag, such that npm  install
         <name>@<tag> will install this version.  By default, npm publish updates and npm install
         installs the latest tag. See npm help npm-dist-tag for details about tags.

       · [--access <public|restricted>]  Tells  the  registry  whether  this  package  should  be
         published  as  public  or  restricted. Only applies to scoped packages, which default to
         restricted.  If you don't have a paid account, you must publish with --access public  to
         publish scoped packages.

       · [--otp  <otpcode>] If you have two-factor authentication enabled in auth-and-writes mode
         then you can provide a code from your authenticator with this. If you don't include this
         and you're running from a TTY then you'll be prompted.

       Fails  if  the  package  name  and  version  combination  already  exists in the specified

       Once a package is published with a given name and version, that specific name and  version
       combination can never be used again, even if it is removed with npm help unpublish.

       As of npm@5, both a sha1sum and an integrity field with a sha512sum of the tarball will be
       submitted to the registry during publication. Subsequent installs will use  the  strongest
       supported algorithm to verify downloads.

       For  a  "dry run" that does everything except actually publishing to the registry, see npm
       help npm-pack, which figures out the files to be included and packs them into a tarball to
       be uploaded to the registry.
