How to find the version of an installed npm package?

Better Stack Team
Updated on March 11, 2024

To find the version of an installed npm package, you can use the following commands:

  • To see the version of an installed Node.js or npm package, run npm list <package-name>.
  • To see the latest version of a package in the registry, run npm view <package-name> version.
  • To see the installed npm packages with their version, run npm ls --depth=0. By default, this displays what is installed locally. To see the globally installed packages, add the global argument: npm ls --depth=0 -global

You can replace the <package-name> with the name of the package you wish to check.
