Node.js and npm are everywhere. Not just on Nodejitsu but on almost every other Platform-as-a-Service in the market today. Since we launched our hosted and on-premise private npm this winter, we've been on a mission to make it easier for developers everywhere to get up and running with their own private registry as quickly as possible.

With that in mind we are excited to announce general availability for the Nodejitsu private npm registry Heroku addon! Not convinced? How's this for simple?

  $ heroku addons add:private-npm

How does it work?

When you provision the addon for a Heroku application, we will create a deployment user for your private registry, which you can use in combination with the Node.js Heroku buildpack maintained by Zeke Sikelianos.

From there you can access your private registry through the same Nodejitsu URLs our customers have always had access to:

  • Private registry: https://[your-subdomain].registry.nodejitsu.com
  • Web interface: https://[your-subdomain].npm.nodejitsu.com

More more more!

There is more information about how your soon to be provisioned private npm registry works available on the official documentation page. Heroku is just the first of several platforms we have planned to release add-ons for, but if you're not a Heroku user you can always just sign up directly at nodejitsu.com!
