Flip on an image CDN. Flip on site backups. Flip on Markdown. Flip on security scanning. Flip on more powerful search. And so much more. Dave Rupert: Hey there, Shop-o-maniacs. You re listening to another episode of the ShopTalk Show, a podcast all about frontend Web design and development. I m Dave Rupert, and with me is Chris Coyier.
In fact, its birthday is coming up in September. Ten years of people complaining about node modules being too big. They ve installed it or it came preinstalled on their computer. It does some magic for them. It just pulls some files out of the sky and that s all they think of it as. It s true. That s what it does.
But, like you said, there s NPM, Inc. There needs to be some company that makes that command work and shells out for the, I m sure, extreme amount of bandwidth required to make that happen. That s why NPM, Inc. It was still Isaac s sort of nights and weekends project when he was working at Joyent, and so he was looking at this thing. At the time, NPM was down for like eight hours a day.
Any time Isaac went to sleep, NPM would fall over and it wouldn t come back up until he woke up again. It was famous for its downtime. He looked at the situation and was like, "Well, this isn t going to work. It s either going to collapse under its own weight or we have to make it sustainable. We d know each other a long time already by that point, and he was like, "All right, well, we need to make it sustainable and one of the ways you can do that is you can form a foundation like some other packaged managers have done.
We talked to the people who run the foundations, and their feedback was not good. Their feedback was like, "Well, we have a fixed amount of money that we have to beg for every year, but our costs go up all the time," and so it s just not a good model. Instead, we decided to go for a more sustainable model of a company whose revenue scales to how popular it is. That s been working so far.
Now, NPM has 11 million users. And they download a lot more stuff. That s something else. It s a little closer to the GitHub model, right? Oh, you want privacy or enterprise, that s a paid thing. Until quite recently, people were like, "Well, we know if GitHub s model is a good model. It seems they were doing okay. We re like, "Yes. We ve got a business model and we like the business model. The point of the business model is that it keeps the registry running forever. Anybody can upload one.
Anyone can download one. The two things, the two primary things people pay for are being able to keep packages private, so if you want to keep it private to just your team or just your company, you want to have different permissions for people to be able to publish or install, that kind of stuff; and also, security, which is becoming a bigger and bigger part of what we do. At the beginning of , we acquired Lift Security in response to how big a deal security was becoming for us because people were very concerned about, you know, "I download 2, packages to make my app run.
It s great that I don t have to write all of the code in those 2, packages, but I don t know who they re from and I don t know if it s good. That s a valid question. We work on that and provide both security, free security services in the form of the NPM audit command and, for enterprise customers, we provide deeper paid services. That runs every time you NPM install, right? I see a little message, like, "You have 53 vulnerabilities in Gulp. What runs every time you install is what we call a quick audit, which just tells you, you ve got something wrong or you haven t.
Then the NPM audit command will tell you everything that s wrong in detail. One of the fun things is that it will tell you how to fix it if it knows how to fix it. The fix is usually that you find the vulnerable module and you upgrade it to the fixed version of the module because, usually if somebody is finding a vulnerability, it immediately results in the author patching that vulnerability.
This is so funny because we released the NPM audit command and, a week after releasing the NPM audit command, we were like, the audit command basically just tells you to run NPM. Why do we have a command? Why doesn t it just run itself? Then we added the NPM audit fix command, which is what that does. The NPM audit fix command is just fixes everything. It s just like, okay, you ve got 53 vulnerable packages. Here are the 53 new packages that you need to install instead to fix everything.
Now you have zero vulnerable packages. You re welcome. It doesn t work for everything. Sometimes, to fix the vulnerability, you need a breaking change, and that means that you have to say, "Okay. It s fine. My code will break. I will need to manually fix it. That s a big deal. It s nice to know. It would be very unfair to think that NPM doesn t care about security.
You do a ton of work for this, including integrate it directly into the tools that people use every single day, which is pretty rad. How do you spread the word about something like that? It s nice that we are able to do it here in a very small way, but with 11 million users. Well, building it into the command helps a lot. You d heard about it because you saw the security command. Lots of people just run the command, run NPM install, and go, "Oh, there s a security command?

A Coupon Code is made up of letters and numbers grouped into 4 character parts . For example, a 3-part code might look like this:. Coupon Codes are random codes which are easy for the recipient to type accurately into a web form. An example application might be to print a code on a letter to a customer who would then enter the code as part of the registration process for web access to their account. The 4th character of each part is a checkdigit, so client-side scripting can be used to highlight parts which have been mis-typed, before the code is even submitted to the application s back-end validation. The checkdigit algorithm takes into account the position of the part being keyed. So for example 1K7Q might be valid in the first part but not in the second so if a user typed the parts in the wrong boxes then their error could be highlighted. The code generation algorithm avoids undesirable codes.
You can use the Stripe API in test mode, which does not affect your live data or interact with the banking networks. The API key you use to authenticate the request determines whether the request is live mode or test mode. The Stripe API differs for every account as we release new versions and tailor functionality. Log in to see docs customized to your version of the API, with your test key and data. Subscribe to Stripe s API announce mailing list for updates. Use apps from our partners to get started with Stripe and to do more with your Stripe account—no code required. Alternatively, you can use restricted API keys for granular permissions. Your API keys carry many privileges, so be sure to keep them secure! Do not share your secret API keys in publicly accessible areas such as GitHub, client-side code, and so forth.
