run ‘npm fund’ for details
To set it for a particular project we can run the below command inside that project directory(where you have package.json) in a command prompt console:
npm config set fund false
Or to set it globally for all the projects running in the system, we can use:
npm config set fund false –global

While installing packages via npm install or npm update sometimes we get issue/blocker that certain number of packages are looking for fund, to get more info run npm fund. These funds they ask for are to support their work/business.
What used to happen earlier was that different packages were asking for funding to support their work by their own ways while installing or updating the package via npm install or npm update.
For example, a package package-tom may be prompting a message like ‘hey-support-us-by-funding’
And other packages used to have their own message/way for saying so.
So npm came up with a standard way of asking for fund via ‘npm fund’. It talks about all the packages in one go.
So, if someone is generous enough to support the open-source developers they can go ahead with the command ‘npm fund’ then it way take them to payment page; This way also this issue can be resolved.
