3. Access our packages

Overview#

In order to be able to get access to the Falcon Platform packages, you will need to connect to our private npm registry.

You can do this using the authorisation token from Step 2.

You'll need to add your token to a .npmrc file.

We recommend adding your token to a user config, it can however be added in your projects root.

Setup#

Add / Edit your .npmrc#

You'll need to either create or edit a .npmrc file. The user config can be found in your users root directory ~/.npmrc. If you don't have one, you can create one:

nano ~/.npmrc
Using Windows?

If you're using Windows you can just use file explorer and any text editor to create / edit this file.

Add your token#

Add the following code to your .npmrc file, replacing <YOUR_TOKEN> with your token.

Example:

@deity:registry=https://npm.deity.io/
//npm.deity.io/:_authToken=<YOUR_TOKEN>

Test your access#

To test your access you can run

npm view @deity/create-falcon-app

This will return the list of available versions of Create Falcon App. If you see version then you have access :-)
