In this tutorial, we are going to learn about how to clear or remove the cache from npm.
When we install a package using the
npm install <package-name> command npm stores the cache inside the user file system.
The default cache directory is
~/.npm on Posix (mac or linux), or
%AppData%/npm-cache on Windows.
To clear a cache in npm, we need to run the
npm cache clean command followed by the
--force flag in our terminal.
Here is an example:
npm cache clean --force
clean: It deletes the all data from your cache folder.
You can also verify the cache, by running the following command.
npm cache verify
