Error npm WARN package json No repository field

0 votes

I installed Express.js with the following command:

sudo npm install -g express

I get the following warnings:

npm WARN package.json range-parser@0.0.4 No repository field.
npm WARN package.json fresh@0.1.0 No repository field.
npm WARN package.json methods@0.0.1 No repository field.
npm WARN package.json methods@0.0.1 No readme data.
npm WARN package.json cookie-signature@1.0.1 No repository field.
npm WARN package.json send@0.1.0 No repository field.
npm WARN package.json pause@0.0.1 No repository field.
npm WARN package.json bytes@0.2.0 No repository field.
npm WARN package.json github-url-from-git@1.1.1 No repository field.
npm WARN package.json assert-plus@0.1.2 No repository field.
npm WARN package.json ctype@0.5.2 No repository field.

I'm new to Node.js and Express.js. Why do I have the above warnings?

Hello @kartik,

It's just a check as of NPM v1.2.20, they report this as a warning.

However,  there are so many packages which still don't have the repository field in their package.json. The field is used for informational purposes.

In the case you're a package author, put the repository in your package.json, like this:

"repository": {
  "type": "git",
  "url": "git://github.com/username/repository.git"
}

You can set private key in your package.json.
This will not only stop you from accidentally running npm publish in your app, but will also stop NPM from printing warnings regarding package.json problems.

{
  "name": "my-super-amazing-app",
  "version": "1.0.0",
  "private": true
}

Hope it helps!!
ThanK you!!
