Bit components can be installed with any package manager that implements the CommonJS package registry specification. Popular examples would be Yarn and NPM.
For example, you can check out our movie-app demo Scope and install any component from that Scope components using NPM or Yarn.
yarn add @bit/bit.movie-app.components.hero
Configuring Bit as a registry in NPM and Yarn clients
Bit can be configured as a registry with any CommonJS compatible client such as NPM and Yarn.
Configuring Bit as a scoped registry
Bit can be configured as a scoped registry and can be associated with any scope name.
npm config set @bit:registry https://node.bitsrc.io
To install private components from bitsrc.io, use
npm login to associate Bit with an authenticated scope. Use your Bit credentials to login.
npm login --registry=https://node.bitsrc.io --scope=@bit
To learn more about NPM scoped registries, please refer to NPM’s documentation.
Configuring Bit as a proxy registry
For better user experience, Bit can be configured as a proxy registry in Yarn and NPM. Bit will proxy any request to the NPM official registry.
npm config set registry https://node.bitsrc.io
Package naming convention
Package naming convention includes the Bit owner, Scope name, namespace and the component name.
An example for installing a component using Yarn or NPM would be as following:
yarn add <owner>.<scope>.<namespace>.<component-name>
