How do I update devDependencies in NPM?

npm update
seems to just update the packages in
dependencies
, but what about
devDependencies
.

Right now you can install
devDependencies
by running
npm install .
, but this doesn't work for
npm update .


Any ideas?

Answer

To update package.json in addition to the local modules, run

npm update --save-dev

Alternatively, the same command to save time

npm update -D

You can view the full detail of update, or any command for that matter through

npm help <cmd>
