Node.js Question

npm install settings to display dependencies being installed

when running npm install on any project I used to get a result looking like this https://prnt.sc/grns5z

which shows all the dependencies being installed,
I recently installed

sudo npm install -g react@16.0.0-alpha.6
and
npm install npm@latest -g


after running these two commands I no longer see the dependencies being installed in yellow text
This is what I see now
https://prnt.sc/grntzv

Is there a option or setting to display the dependencies being installed like in the first screenshot?

I tried resetting npm global settings with
echo "" > $(npm config get globalconfig)
npm config --global edit
but it didn't work,

Try killing any lingering node processes by running these codes:

sudo kill -9 ```pgrep node```

rm -rf ./node_modules

npm update

then you should try running the codes again.

*******:~$ sudo npm install -g react@16.0.0-alpha.6

It should show you this after it installs successfully

+ react@16.0.0-alpha.6

added 16 packages in 35.241s

and

*******:~$ sudo npm install npm@latest -g

/usr/bin/npm -> /usr/lib/node_modules/npm/bin/npm-cli.js
/usr/bin/npx -> /usr/lib/node_modules/npm/bin/npx-cli.js
+ npm@5.4.2
updated 1 package in 15.393s
