       npmrc - The npm config files

       npm  gets  its  config  settings  from  the command line, environment variables, and npmrc

       The npm config command can be used to update and edit the contents of the user and  global
       npmrc files.

       For a list of available configuration options, see npm help config.

       The four relevant files are:

       • per-project config file (/path/to/my/project/.npmrc)

       • per-user config file (~/.npmrc)

       • global config file ($PREFIX/etc/npmrc)

       • npm builtin config file (/path/to/npm/npmrc)

       All  npm  config  files  are an ini-formatted list of key = value parameters.  Environment
       variables can be replaced using ${VARIABLE_NAME}. For example:

         prefix = ${HOME}/.npm-packages

       Each of these files is loaded, and config options are resolved  in  priority  order.   For
       example,  a  setting in the userconfig file would override the setting in the globalconfig

       Array values are specified by adding "[]" after the key name. For example:

         key[] = "first value"
         key[] = "second value"

       Lines in .npmrc files are interpreted as comments when they begin with a ; or # character.
       .npmrc  files  are  parsed  by  npm/ini,  which specifies this
       comment syntax.

       For example:

         # last modified: 01 Jan 2016
         ; Set a new registry for a scoped package

   Per-project config file
       When working locally in a project, a .npmrc file in the root of the project (ie, a sibling
       of node_modules and package.json) will set config values specific to this project.

       Note that this only applies to the root of the project that you're running npm in.  It has
       no effect when your module is published.  For example, you can't  publish  a  module  that
       forces itself to install globally, or in a different location.

       Additionally, this file is not read in global mode, such as when running npm install -g.

   Per-user config file
       $HOME/.npmrc (or the userconfig param, if set in the environment or on the command line)

   Global config file
       $PREFIX/etc/npmrc  (or  the  globalconfig  param,  if set above): This file is an ini-file
       formatted list of key = value parameters.  Environment variables can be replaced as above.

   Built-in config file

       This is an unchangeable "builtin" configuration file  that  npm  keeps  consistent  across
       updates.   Set  fields  in here using the ./configure script that comes with npm.  This is
       primarily for distribution maintainers to override  default  configs  in  a  standard  and
       consistent manner.
