Readme

npm-login-with-param
A simple script to login into npm from the command line, in case you don't have an interactive shell, expect or anything fancy. This package extends the great work Arian Stolwijk did by allowing you to provide parameters to the login process. Very handy for docker builds

Usage

With parameters
npx npm-login-with-param -u john -p secret -e john@test.com

or
npx npm-login-with-param --username john --password secret --email john@test.com

With environment variables
export NPM_USER=john
export NPM_PASS=secret
export NPM_EMAIL=john@example.com
npx npm-login-with-param

npm login --auth-type=legacy

If you are using the npm CLI version 9.0 or greater and you are logging in to a private registry you will almost certainly need to use the --auth-type=legacy option of npm.
See: npm login auth-type
To use --auth-type with this simple script, use a space and not an equal sign:
npx npm-login-with-param --auth-type legacy --username john --password secret --email john@test.com

How it works

It's a simple child process that reads/writes from/to the stdout/stdin.
