An uplink is a link with an external registry that provides access to external packages.

Uplinks

Użycie

uplinks:
npmjs:
url: https://registry.npmjs.org/
server2:
url: http://mirror.local.net/
timeout: 100ms
server3:
url: http://mirror2.local.net:9000/
baduplink:
url: http://localhost:55666/

Configuration

You can define mutiple uplinks and each of them must have an unique name (key). They can have the following properties:

Auth property

The auth property allows you to use an auth token with an uplink. Using the default environment variable:

uplinks:
private:
url: https://private-registry.domain.com/registry
auth:
type: bearer
token_env: true # defaults to `process.env['NPM_TOKEN']`

or via a specified environment variable:

uplinks:
private:
url: https://private-registry.domain.com/registry
auth:
type: bearer
token_env: FOO_TOKEN

token_env: FOO_TOKENinternally will use process.env['FOO_TOKEN']

or by directly specifying a token:

uplinks:
private:
url: https://private-registry.domain.com/registry
auth:
type: bearer
token: "token"

Note: token has priority over token_env

You Must know

  • Uplinks must be registries compatible with the npm endpoints. Eg: verdaccio, sinopia@1.4.0, npmjs registry, yarn registry, JFrog, Nexus and more.
  • Setting cache to false will help to save space in your hard drive. This will avoid store tarballs but it will keep metadata in folders.
  • Exceed with multiple uplinks might slow down the lookup of your packages due for each request a npm client does, verdaccio does 1 call for each uplink.
  • The (timeout, maxage and fail_timeout) format follow the NGINX measurement units
