npm, Inc. has also launched npm Private Modules, a long-awaited feature of the platform that enables developers to share and re-use private and confidential code. Pricing plans for npm Private Modules will be $7 per month for individuals. More than 2,000 developers have already signed up to trial the service.
"The Unix philosophy that npm follows of small modules has been a real boon for us," said Dion Almaer, VP Engineering, Walmart Labs. "It is also critical to make sure that you can manage these dependencies and make sure that they are available in a secure way, which npm Private Modules provide."
"Module driven development is a growing priority in our development workflow at DocuSign, and npm has been critical to enabling that shift," said Edmond Meinfelder, node architect at DocuSign Inc. "We have benefited from npm's Enterprise offering supporting our security needs, and npm Private Modules is a great addition to npm's toolkit; it's key for individuals and companies who want to protect their intellectual property."
"We're in a new era of module-driven development where software is built using a multitude of building blocks instead of one monolithic code base," said Isaac Schlueter, CEO and co-founder of npm, Inc, and creator of npm. "npm was designed to fit seamlessly in this new way of coding, making developers' lives easier and enabling better collaboration across teams. We're excited to leverage this funding to continue improving npm and cater to our thriving community of passionate developers."
"npm is critical to making Node.js work; it is the default package manager and the key gateway for anybody building Node.js apps," said Puneet Agarwal, a partner at True Ventures. "Isaac, Laurie Voss and Rod Boothby comprise a veritable dream team of Node.js superstars, and we are thrilled to continue our support of their company."
npm, Inc. was founded in 2013 by npm's creator Isaac Schlueter, along with Rod Boothby, a longtime entrepreneur with a quantitative background in derivatives finance and risk management at Wells Fargo and Ernst & Young, and Laurie Voss, a developer of 18 years with experience at Yahoo! who also cofounded a successful startup that was acquired in 2014.
