Publish Your First NPM Package (Vue) - PART 2

Hi Again,

So following up on yesterday's tutorial, in this one, we're going to create a git repo, push our code to it, then login to npm through the cli, then publish our package that we've created in the previous post.

1. Push the code to github

Go to
Sign Up or Sign In, then click on the new repository button

Fill in all the details required by github and click create repository

Once that's done, we're gonna push our code to github.

But before we do that, we're going to include the dist folder in our .gitignore so that we don't push our build folder to github.

Open the .gitignore file and the following at the end


Now let's push our code😎

In our terminal we type the following after changing directories to our project folder

git remote add origin
git push -u origin master

Now our code is pushed to our github repository.

2. Upload the package to npm

First thing we need to do is to log in to npm, using our terminal

npm login

Add your log in details

It'll confirm that you're logged in, from here onwards, you'll be able to push to npm from your terminal

Now that we have successfully logged in, let's publish the package.

npm publish

If everything works well, you should get the following message

You can also confirm, by going to the npm package page

Now the package is ready to use by simply doing an npm install.

3. Celebrate and write a post about how you published an awesome npm package that everyone can use 😍
