Hello Guys I am Shiro and Today I'm going to tell you how to write and publish your first NPM package..!
- NodeJS & NPM
- account on npmjs.com

Login to NPM

Fill these details and login.
Use this command to know if you have successfully logged in.

Create your NPM package
First create a new folder to hold your package. then open that folder in terminal and use this command.
$ npm init -y
Write your code
Then open the folder in vscode and create a file called index.js. In here I am going to show you how to write a simple package to multiply two numbers.
You can copy and paste this code into index.js

If there is no error you can goto your Profile in NPM and see your first NPM package.
