Is there way to install npm or yarn pakage without sudo

I am a new user for endeavouros.I mostly do React js / Node js / Nest js work using endeavouros.
I installed node using these commands:- sudo pacman -S nodejs / sudo pacman -S npm.
Now I can’t install anything related above programming stuff. Alway need to use sudo , Is their way to by pass sudo install…?

There is no way to install via pacman without sudo elevation, why are you trying to pass sudo if i may ask.

No no. I mean if I need to install nodemon i can’t download the default command.(npm install nodemon)
I have to use (sudo npm install nodemon).I need to skip this sudo install npm pkage

I see, try creating a folder in say, your home directory and point npm towards it to see if you can use it afterwards.
like so:

  • mkdir ~/.my_npm_packages
  • npm config set prefix ~/.my_npm_packages


glad i helped, if it was indeed the solution could you please mark it as such so everybody else who might see this knows.


Why not? By default, npm will install to the current directory:

$ cd $(mktemp -d)
$ node install nodemon

I had to add this to my .zshrc

export PATH=~/.npm-global/bin:$PATH


Sorry but it’s not working.

I pick this link from the reply and this works fine.
