Publishing a package

You can publish a package to GitHub Packages to make the package available for others to download and re-use.

Who can use this feature

Anyone with write permissions for a repository can publish a package to that repository.

Nota: GitHub Packages se encuentra actualmente en fase beta para GitHub AE.

About published packages

You can help people understand and use your package by providing a description and other details like installation and usage instructions on the package page. GitHub AE provides metadata for each version, such as the publication date, download activity, and recent versions. For an example package page, see @Codertocat/hello-world-npm.

Puede publicar paquetes en un repositorio interno (paquetesinternos) para compartir con todos en su empresa, o en un repositorio privado (paquetes privados) para compartir con colaboradores o con una organización. A repository can be connected to more than one package. To prevent confusion, make sure the README and description clearly provide information about each package.
