I just find this inconsistency a little odd.
@zkat I started to implement this (with a util function to avoid repetition), but apparently the registry doesn’t return the same E401 messages for
dist-tag? Or is that on the registry client? Edit: the response doesn’t seem to have a
www-authenticate header, to be more specific.
nooo, don’t do this. This is already implemented in https://github.com/npm/cli/pull/2!!
I actually went through every command and made sure this OTP prompting was consistent. It’s just waiting for the PR to pass tests and for us to do a release.
Oh lol, I even looked at that PR today — not closely enough, apparently. I guess it’s still a learning experience.
it’s never a waste to get a better understanding of a codebase :) I throw away swaths of code on the reg.
