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 firstname.lastname@example.org "1.x is no longer supported"
In this case, a version email@example.com 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.
The base URL of the npm registry.
This is a one-time password from a two-factor authenticator. It's needed
when publishing or changing package permissions with npm access.
If not set, and a registry response fails with a challenge for a one-time
password, npm will prompt on the command line for one.
