Private Packages

FORGEBOX allows you to publish packages that only you can see and install. You'll be able to view your private package from the CLI, in the search, and in your ForgeBox account, but these packages will now show up for any other users.

Publishing private packages to ForgeBox

To create a private package, set the private property to true in your box.json prior to publishing.

package init
package set private=true
package set slug=my-slug@forgeBoxUser

Installing private packages from ForgeBox

Replace forgeBoxUser with your actual ForgeBox username. When you install the package, you'll need to use the full slug like so:

install my-slug@forgeBoxUser

You can install specific versions or version ranges as you would expect:

install my-slug@forgeBoxUser@1.0.0
install my-slug@forgeBoxUser@be

Keep in mind that the private packages are a paid feature, however, we are giving one private package with the community plan for free for you to explore and play with it.
