Package description

What is global-prefix?

The global-prefix npm package provides a way to determine the path of the global npm directory on a system. This can be useful for packages that need to know where global modules are installed, for example, to check if a certain global package is installed or to install a package globally programmatically.

What are global-prefix's main functionalities?

Get global npm prefix

This feature allows you to retrieve the path of the global npm directory. The code sample requires the global-prefix module and then logs the global npm prefix to the console.

const globalPrefix = require('global-prefix');
console.log(globalPrefix);
