How to restore/reset npm configuration to default values?

+1 vote
I have played with npm set and npm config set for several times, now I want to reset to default values (a kind of factory reset).

Does npm provide a command to do that? or Should I delete all configuration files by hands then reinstall it?

I need it both on linux Centos and on Windows 10.

Hello @kartik,

To reset user defaults

Run this in the command line:

echo "" > $(npm config get userconfig)
npm config edit

To reset global defaults

echo "" > $(npm config get globalconfig)
npm config --global edit

If you need sudo then run this instead:

sudo sh -c 'echo "" > $(npm config get globalconfig)'

Hope it helps!!

Thank you!!
