What is NPX?

NPX is a powerful package management utility for Node.js that allows you to install and manage your npm packages easily.

NPX uses the package.json file to determine the dependencies of your project and installs them automatically. You can install NPX easily by running the following command in your terminal:

npx –install-global npx

Once NPX is installed, you can use it to install any npm package by running the following command:

npx package-name 

For example, to install the lodash npm package, you would run the following command:

npx lodash

NPX will install the lodash npm package and its dependencies automatically. You can also use NPX to manage your project's dependencies. For example, to add the lodash npm package as a dependency of your project, you would run the following command:

npx add-dev-dependency lodash

This command will add the lodash npm package as a development dependency of your project. You can also use NPX to run scripts. For example, to run the script script.js in your project, you would run the following command:

npx script.js

NPX will run the script "script.js" in your project and report the output in the terminal. You can also use NPX to build your project. For example, to build your project using the "build.js" script, you would run the following command:

npx build.js

NPX will build your project using the build.js script and report the output in the terminal.
