Add a hook to watch packages belonging to the user substack:

$ npm hook add ~substack my-shared-secret

Add a hook to watch packages in the scope @npm

$ npm hook add @npm my-shared-secret

List all your active hooks:

$ npm hook ls

List your active hooks for the lodash package:

Update an existing hook's url:

$ npm hook update id-deadbeef

Remove a hook:

$ npm hook rm id-deadbeef


Allows you to manage npm hooks, including adding, removing, listing, and updating.

Hooks allow you to configure URL endpoints that will be notified whenever a change happens to any of the supported entity types. Three different types of entities can be watched by hooks: packages, owners, and scopes.

To create a package hook, simply reference the package name.

To create an owner hook, prefix the owner name with ~ (as in, ~youruser).

To create a scope hook, prefix the scope name with @ (as in, @yourscope).

The hook id used by update and rm are the IDs listed in npm hook ls for that particular hook.

The shared secret will be sent along to the URL endpoint so you can verify the request came from your own configured hook.
