npm deprecate <pkg>[@<version range>] <message>
Note: This command is unaware of workspaces.
This command will update the npm registry entry for a package, providing a
deprecation warning to all who attempt to install it.
It works on version ranges as well as specific
versions, so you can do something like this:
npm deprecate my-thing@"< 0.2.3" "critical bug fixed in v0.2.3"
SemVer ranges passed to this command are interpreted such that they do
include prerelease versions. For example:
npm deprecate email@example.com "1.x is no longer supported"
In this case, a version firstname.lastname@example.org will also be deprecated.
You must be the package owner to deprecate something. See the owner and
adduser help topics.
To un-deprecate a package, specify an empty string ("") for the message
argument. Note that you must use double quotes with no space between them to
format an empty string.
