How to install a previous exact version of a NPM package?

If you have to install an older version of a package, just specify it

npm install <package>@<version>

For example: npm install [email protected]

You can also add the --save flag to that command to add it to your package.json dependencies, or --save --save-exact flags if you want that exact version specified in your package.json dependencies.

The install command is documented here:

If you’re not sure what versions of a package are available, you can use:

npm view <package> versions

And npm view can be used for viewing other things about a package too.
