Every organization is granted an organization scope, a unique namespace for packages owned by the organization that matches the organization name. For example, an organization named "wombat" would have the scope @wombat.

You can use scopes to:

  • Maintain a fork of a package: @wombat/request.
  • Avoid name disputes with popular names: @wombat/web.
  • Easily find packages in the same namespace

Packages in a scope must follow the same naming guidelines as unscoped packages.

Managing unscoped packages

While you are granted a scope by default when you create an organization, you can also use organizations to manage unscoped packages, or packages under a different scope (such as a user scope).
