Installing past or future versions of npm packages

npm lets you install versions of packages other than the current one, via:

    npm install «package-name»@«tag»
    npm install «package-name»@«version»

Installing tags

Tags are aliases for versions. You can look up available tags via:

    npm view «package-name» dist-tags

Example:

    $ npm view webpack dist-tags
    { latest: '1.12.9', beta: '2.0.1-beta' }

Installing versions

You can look up available versions via:

    npm view «package-name» versions

Example:

    $ npm view webpack versions
    
    [ '0.1.0',
      '0.1.1',
      ···
      '1.12.8',
      '1.12.9',
      '2.0.0-beta',
      '2.0.1-beta' ]
