    Meanwhile, I tried to discuss this issue with our colleagues who are responsible for ASP.NET forum. They said if you just want to use the npm management, you can directly click the project name and Add-New Items…-Web, choose ‘NPM configuration file’ to configure. For more detail information, please have a look at this:

    If you want to use the npm gui, you can add it through the following two methods:

    1. Install the npm gui through the command: npm install npm-gui, please check this reference:
    2. Manually add and configure the npm gui as below example
      • right-click project -> add new item -> select npm Contiguaration File
      • add npm-gui package at package.json just like :


                    "version": "1.0.0",

                    "name": "",

                    "private": true,

                  "devDependencies": {

                       "npm-gui": "0.3.1",

                       "gulp": "3.9.1",

                       "gulp-less": "3.3.0"



    • Go to:  \src\xxxx\node_modules\.bin
    • click npm-gui.cmd
    • it opens http://localhost:1337/#/dependencies
