Tab Completion for npm

. <(npm completion)

Enables tab-completion in all npm commands.

The synopsis above loads the completions into your current shell. Adding it to your ~/.bashrc or ~/.zshrc will make the completions available everywhere.

You may of course also pipe the output of npm completion to a file such as /usr/local/etc/bash_completion.d/npm if you have a system that will read that file for you.

When COMP_CWORD, COMP_LINE, and COMP_POINT are defined in the environment, npm completion acts in "plumbing mode", and outputs completions based on the arguments.
