Microsoft Acquires npm

Nat Friedman (Hacker News):

I’m excited to announce that GitHub has signed an agreement to acquire npm.


For the millions of developers who use the public npm registry every day, npm will always be available and always be free.


The JavaScript ecosystem is massive and growing quickly. It needs a rock-solid registry. We will make the investments necessary to ensure that npm is fast, reliable, and scalable.


Looking further ahead, we’ll integrate GitHub and npm to improve the security of the open source software supply chain, and enable you to trace a change from a GitHub pull request to the npm package version that fixed it.
