List installed packages
npm list [<pkg> ...] npm ls [<pkg> ...] npm la [<pkg> ...] npm ll [<pkg> ...]
This command will print to stdout all the versions of packages that are installed, as well as their dependencies, in a tree-structure.
Positional arguments are
name@version-range identifiers, which will
limit the results to only the paths to the packages named. Note that
nested packages will also show the paths to the specified packages.
For example, running
npm ls promzard in npm's source tree will show:
firstname.lastname@example.org /path/to/npm └─┬ email@example.com └── firstname.lastname@example.org
It will print out extraneous, missing, and invalid packages.
If a project specifies git urls for dependencies these are shown in parentheses after the name@version to make it easier for users to recognize potential forks of a project.
When run as
la, it shows extended information by default.
Show information in JSON format.
Show extended information.
Show parseable output instead of tree view.
List packages in the global install prefix instead of in the current project.
Max display depth of the dependency tree.
