How to Update Local Packages

It's a good practice to periodically update the packages your application depends on. Then, if the original developers have improved their code, your code will be improved as well.

To do this:

  1. run npm update in the same directory as the package.json file of the application that you want to update.
  2. Run npm outdated. There should not be any results.
