What version of npm does apm based on?

Will apm upgrade to npm v3 soon?

apm updated to npm v3 in Atom 1.10

Atom Package Manager Upgrade

The new version of apm runs on Node 4.4.5 and npm 3.10.5. This has a number of benefits including:

  • Package dependencies are now flattened by npm 3, reducing problems with paths exceeding the path length restriction on Windows
  • Package that depend on native modules now install more reliably
  • Installing packages from behind proxy servers should work more easily now
