Publish a package

npm publish [<tarball>|<folder>] [--tag <tag>] [--access <public|restricted>]

Publishes '.' if no argument supplied
Sets tag 'latest' if no --tag specified

Publishes a package to the registry so that it can be installed by name. See npm-developers(7) for details on what's included in the published package, as well as details on how the package is built.

By default npm will publish to the public registry. This can be overridden by specifying a different default registry or using a npm-scope(7) in the name (see package.json(5)).

Fails if the package name and version combination already exists in the specified registry.

Once a package is published with a given name and version, that specific name and version combination can never be used again, even if it is removed with npm-unpublish(1).
