Github is taking over Node Package Manager aka npm . Or in short, is joining the Microsoft club which owns Github. Yes, it sounds better when you hear Github acquires npm than MS acquires npm.
I’m excited to announce that GitHub has signed an agreement to acquire npm.
According to the npm blog
npm, Inc., is being purchased by GitHub.
The public registry remains public, free, and as available as ever.
npm as you know it continues, and in fact, there is good reason to believe that it’ll only get better.
I’m still going to be working on npm (but with the luxury of more resources and less stress).
I’m really excited about the stuff we’re going to do.
According to Github
For paying customers who use npm Pro, Teams, and Enterprise to host private registries, we will continue to support you.
