Like on a *nix system, ls is short for the list, and that’s what it does: lists the installed modules.

List local packages

To find out what modules are installed in your project, you can issue this command:

npm ls

ls command will also list the dependencies of packages installed by the project.

List global packages

To list global packages add the flag -g before ls command

npm -g ls

This will display the packages installed in the global cache.

Show only top-level packages

To display only top-level packages, you can add the flag --depth=0 to ls command

npm ls --depth=0
