Verdaccio is a simple, zero-config-required local private npm registry. No need for an entire database just to get started! Verdaccio comes out of the box with its own tiny database, and the ability to proxy other registries (eg. npmjs.org), caching the downloaded modules along the way. For those looking to extend their storage capabilities, Verdaccio supports various community-made plugins to hook into services such as Amazon's s3, Google Cloud Storage or create your own plugin.
Install with npm:
npm install --global verdaccio

If you want to use all benefits of npm package system in your company without sending all code to the public, and use your private packages just as easy as public ones.
If you use multiples registries in your organization and need to fetch packages from multiple sources in one single project you might take advance of the uplinks feature with Verdaccio, chaining multiple registries and fetching from one single endpoint.
If you want to use a modified version of some 3rd-party package (for example, you found a bug, but maintainer didn't accept pull request yet), you can publish your version locally under the same name. See in detail here.
Verdaccio has proved to be a lightweight registry that can be booted in a couple of seconds, fast enough for any CI. Many open source projects use verdaccio for end to end testing, to mention some examples, create-react-app, mozilla neutrino, pnpm, storybook, alfresco or eclipse theia. You can read more in dedicated article to E2E in our blog.
