Introduction to GitHub Packages

Registro del paquete de GitHub is a software package hosting service that allows you to host your software packages privately or publicly and use packages as dependencies in your projects.

El Registro del paquete de GitHub se encuentra disponible con GitHub Free, GitHub Pro, GitHub Free para organizaciones, GitHub Team, Nube de GitHub Enterprise, GitHub Enterprise Server 3.0 o superior y GitHub AE.


Registro del paquete de GitHub no está disponible para repositorios privados que pertenezcan a cuentas que utilicen planes tradicionales por repositorio. Las cuentas que utilicen los planes tradicionales por repositorio tampoco podrán acceder al Registro de contenedores ya que estas cuentas se facturan por repositorio. Para obtener más información, consulta la sección "[Productos de GitHub](/get-started/learning-about-github/githubs-products)".

About Registro del paquete de GitHub

Registro del paquete de GitHub is a platform for hosting and managing packages, including containers and other dependencies. Registro del paquete de GitHub combines your source code and packages in one place to provide integrated permissions management and billing, so you can centralize your software development on GitHub.

You can integrate Registro del paquete de GitHub with GitHub APIs, GitHub Actions, and webhooks to create an end-to-end DevOps workflow that includes your code, CI, and deployment solutions.

Registro del paquete de GitHub offers different package registries for commonly used package managers, such as npm, RubyGems, Apache Maven, Gradle, Docker, and NuGet. GitHub's Registro de contenedores is optimized for containers and supports Docker and OCI images. For more information on the different package registries that Registro del paquete de GitHub supports, see "Working with a Registro del paquete de GitHub registry."

You can view a package's README, as well as metadata such as licensing, download statistics, version history, and more on GitHub. For more information, see "Viewing packages."

Overview of package permissions and visibility

PermissionsThe permissions for a package are either inherited from the repository where the package is hosted or, for packages in the Registro de contenedores, they can be defined for specific user or organization accounts. For more information, see "Configuring a package’s access control and visibility."
VisibilityPuedes publicar paquetes en un repositorio público (paquetespúblicos) para compartir con todo GitHub, o en un repositorio privado (paquetes privados) para compartir con colaboradores o con una organización.

For more information, see "About permissions for Registro del paquete de GitHub."

About billing for Registro del paquete de GitHub

El uso de Registro del paquete de GitHub es gratuito para los paquetes públicos. En el caos de los paquetes privados, cada cuenta en GitHub.com recibe cierta cantidad de almacenamiento gratuito y transferencia de datos, dependiendo de los productos que se utilicen con la cuenta. Cualquier uso que no se contemple en las cantidades incluidas se controla con los límites de gasto. Si eres un cliente que factura mensualmente, tu cuenta tendrá un límite de gastos predeterminado de 0 dólares Estadounidenses (USD), lo cual previene el uso adicional de almacenamiento o transferencia de datos después de que alcanzas las cantidades que se incluyen. Si pagas tu cuenta por factura, ésta tendrá un límite de gastos ilimitado predeterminadamente. For more information, see "About billing for Registro del paquete de GitHub."

Authenticating to Registro del paquete de GitHub

You need an access token to publish, install, and delete packages.

You can use a personal access token (PAT) to authenticate to Registro del paquete de GitHub or the GitHub API. When you create a personal access token, you can assign the token different scopes depending on your needs. For more information about packages-related scopes for a PAT, see "About permissions for GitHub Packages."

To authenticate to a Registro del paquete de GitHub registry within a GitHub Actions workflow, you can use:

  • GITHUB_TOKEN to publish packages associated with the workflow repository.
  • a PAT to install packages associated with other private repositories (which GITHUB_TOKEN can't access).

Para obtener más información sobre el GITHUB_TOKEN que se utiliza en los flujos de trabajo de GitHub Actions, consulta la sección "Autenticarse en un flujo de trabajo".

Managing packages

You can delete a package in the GitHub.com user interface or using the REST API. For more information, see the "Registro del paquete de GitHub API."

When you use the GraphQL API to query and delete private packages, you must use the same token you use to authenticate to Registro del paquete de GitHub. For more information, see "Deleting and restoring a package" and "Forming calls with GraphQL."

You can configure webhooks to subscribe to package-related events, such as when a package is published or updated. For more information, see the "package webhook event."
