section: cli−commands title: npm−explore


npm-explore − Browse an installed package


npm explore <pkg> [ −− <command>]

Spawn a subshell in the directory of the installed package specified.

If a command is specified, then it is run in the subshell, which then immediately terminates.

This is particularly handy in the case of git submodules in the node_modules folder:

npm explore some−dependency −− git pull origin master

Note that the package is not automatically rebuilt afterwards, so be sure to use npm rebuild <pkg> if you make any changes.


Default: SHELL environment variable, or "bash" on Posix, or "cmd" on Windows

Type: path

The shell to run for the npm explore command.
