This post will show you – how can you get a list of all node-modules installed globally & locally on your machine.
List all globally installed node modules
You can use below commands to get a list of all node modules installed globally on your machine.
npm list -g --depth 0
npm list -g
There are also few aliases of
list and they are
ll. It means you can also write above commands in below ways also.
npm ls -g --depth 0
npm la -g --depth 0
npm ll -g --depth 0
When you run commands using
la – It will show some extra information by default.
npm list -g --depth 0command is faster than
npm list -g. Reason being,
npm list -g --depth 0doesn’t care about further node-module dependencies & display result as a flat list. On the other hand,
npm list -gcommand looks for further module dependencies & displays the result in a tree structure format.
List all locally installed node modules (inside a project)
All the commands will remain the same in this case except below two things:
- Just remove
-gfrom above commands, as
-grefers to global.
- And run above commands from your project’s root directory location.
