re: npm@6.13.0 VIEW POST


In premise, I support what you're doing here, Ruy... developers need funding to help support the work they are doing. However, in practice, I don't necessarily want to see this advertisement every time I run an npm command... primarily because it distracts from a more important message I'm looking for, indicating which packages are vulnerable and need updates.

I need a way to turn this off, please.


Worry not @crates , early on the RFC process we realized that would be an important requirement and we shipped it since v6.13.0 with the support to a fund config that allows users to mute the post-install message.

There are multiple ways you can toggle it:

  • As a command option: npm --no-fund
  • As an .npmrc option: just add fund=false to your .npmrc file (either local to a project or global at your $HOME directory) more info on npmrc files here

Thanks for the comment, that can def be useful to other people 😊


Thanks so much for the quick response... like any true hacker, I read the docs and inferred this for myself, and I can confirm that it's working fine for me. Thanks again for your awesome contributions. Keep up the good work bruv!
