npm install use cache?(Cannot feel the progress by --verbose argument)

Hi, About using npm install (–verbose on): I see that when I run it twice , It doesn’t use the cache that installed before?? However I feel that the install speed is much more quicker… here the fact is ? (How could I prove the fact)


Yes, it’s cached :slight_smile:

If you make the second install request within 5 minutes of your last one, it’ll be even faster because it doesn’t even have to bother with revalidation.
