       npm-view - View registry info


         npm view [<@scope>/]<name>[@<version>] [<field>[.<subfield>]...]

         aliases: info, show, v


       This  command  shows  data  about  a package and prints it to the stream referenced by the
       outfd config, which defaults to stdout.

       To show the package registry entry for the connect package, you can do this:

         npm view connect

       The default version is "latest" if unspecified.

       Field names can be specified after the package  descriptor.   For  example,  to  show  the
       dependencies of the ronn package at version 0.3.5, you could do the following:

         npm view ronn@0.3.5 dependencies

       You  can  view  child fields by separating them with a period.  To view the git repository
       URL for the latest version of npm, you could do this:

         npm view npm repository.url

       This makes it easy to view information about a dependency with a bit of  shell  scripting.
       For  example, to view all the data about the version of opts that ronn depends on, you can
       do this:

         npm view opts@$(npm view ronn dependencies.opts)

       For fields that are arrays, requesting a non-numeric field will return all of  the  values
       from  the  objects  in  the  list.   For example, to get all the contributor names for the
       "express" project, you can do this:

         npm view express

       You may also use numeric indices in square braces to specifically select  an  item  in  an
       array  field.  To just get the email address of the first contributor in the list, you can
       do this:

         npm view express contributors[0].email

       Multiple fields may be specified, and will be printed one after another.  For example,  to
       get all the contributor names and email addresses, you can do this:

         npm view express

       "Person"  fields  are  shown  as  a  string  if they would be shown as an object.  So, for
       example, this will show the list of npm contributors in the shortened string format.  (See
       npm help 5 package.json for more on this.)

         npm view npm contributors

       If  a  version  range is provided, then data will be printed for every matching version of
       the package.  This will show which version of jsdom was required by each matching  version
       of yui3:

         npm view yui3@'>0.5.4' dependencies.jsdom

       To show the connect package version history, you can do this:

         npm view connect versions


       If  only  a  single  string  field  for  a  single  version is output, then it will not be
       colorized or quoted, so as to enable piping the output to another command. If the field is
       an object, it will be output as a JavaScript object literal.

       If the --json flag is given, the outputted fields will be JSON.

       If  the  version range matches multiple versions, than each printed value will be prefixed
       with the version it applies to.

       If multiple fields are requested, than each of them are prefixed with the field name.
