Installing the npm packages

  1. Navigate to the npm package GitHub repository.
  2. Copy the https URL available on the browser tab and run the npm install command like this.
npm install https://github.com/expressjs/express

This above command installs the express package from the GitHub repository and it adds the following dependency to your package.json file.

"express": "git+https://github.com/expressjs/express.git",

You can also install the particular version of an npm package from the GitHub repository by specifying a version number like this.

npm install https://github.com/expressjs/express#semver:4.17.0

This installs the express version 4.17.0.

You can find the version numbers of an npm package by clicking on the tags or releases section.

Note: Some of the GitHub repositories doesn’t support you to install it using the npm.
