Get help on npm

Synopsis

npm help <term> [<terms..>]

Description

If supplied a topic, then show the appropriate documentation page.

If the topic does not exist, or if multiple terms are provided, then run the help-search command to find a match. Note that, if help-search finds a single subject, then it will run help on that topic, so unique matches are equivalent to specifying a topic name.

Configuration
