npmbrew -- a npm version manager

Build Status NPM Downloads

Why npmbrew?

npm is flooded with issue reports on a daily basis. Sometimes I spent just too much time juggling around different npm versions trying to reproduce the error.

I created npmbrew to make it easy to switch versions. See also: #14

Install

Using npm.

npm install -g npmbrew

Usage

Usage: npmbrew <command>

Commands:
clean                Delete all installed sources
help                 Output help information
install <version>    Install the version passed
ls                   List versions currently installed
ls-remote            List registry versions
npm                  An alias of npm <command>
uninstall <version>  Delete the install for <version>
use <version>        Use <version>
