Verdaccio is a proxy and by default links the public registry.
uplinks: npmjs: url: https://registry.npmjs.org/
You can link multiple registries, the following document will drive you through some helpful configurations.
Using Associating Scope
The unique way to access multiple registries using the
.npmrc is the scope feature as follows:
// .npmrc registry=https://registry.npmjs.org :registry=http://localhost:4873
This approach is valid, but comes with several disadvantages:
- It only works with scopes
- Scope must match, no Regular Expressions are allowed
- One scope cannot fetch from multiple registries
- Tokens/passwords must be defined within
.npmrcand checked in into the repo.
See a full example here.
Linking a Registry
Linking a registry is fairly simple. First, define a new section in the
uplinks section. Note, the order here is irrelevant.
uplinks: private: url: https://private.registry.net/npm ... [truncated] ... 'webpack': access: $all publish: $authenticated proxy: private
proxy section to define the selected registry you want to proxy.
Linking Multiple Registries
uplinks: server1: url: https://server1.registry.net/npm server2: url: https://server2.registry.net/npm ... [truncated] ... 'webpack': access: $all publish: $authenticated proxy: server1 server2
Verdaccio supports multiple registries on the
proxy field. The request will be resolved with the first in the list; if that fails, it will try with the next in the list and so on.
Having a full Offline Registry is completely possible. If you don't want any connectivity with external remotes you can do the following.
auth: htpasswd: file: ./htpasswd uplinks: packages: '@my-company/*': access: $all publish: none '@*/*': access: $all publish: $authenticated '**': access: $all publish: $authenticated
proxy fields within each section of
packages. The registry will become full offline.
