Skip questions when creating a package.json file

Topics: NPM

We often use the npm init command to initialize a package.json file. The command will ask you some questions that are used to fill the content of package.json later.

$ npm init
package name: (dev)
version: (1.0.0)

If you're a lazy at this step and would like to manually edit the file, you can skip all questions by using the y parameter:

$ npm init -y

// Or
$ npm init --yes

Then it will create a package.json file with the default value for basic options as following:

"name": "dev",
"version": "1.0.0",
"description": "",
"main": "index.js",
"scripts": {
"test": "echo \"Error: no test specified\" && exit 1"
"keywords": [],
"author": "",
"license": "ISC"
