Typo in help info for "npm install"

(Ian Rehwinkel) #1

What I Wanted to Do

I wanted to install an npm package.

What Happened Instead

I noticed that the alisases in the command help were printed as following: i, isntall, add.

Reproduction Steps

Type npm i --help into terminal.


It’s not really a bug, just a minor spelling mistake.

I can’t check right now, but that could just be an intentional alias to catch typos.
