Make these changes to augment your local npm autocompletion to include autocomplete for `npm install`
#!/usr/bin/env bash #adding this to force silly gist highlighting
# If you are already using npm autocompletion via (https://docs.npmjs.com/cli/completion), I assume that you have some code in
# your .bashrc/.zshrc file. Follow the instruction below to avoid clobbering the npm autocomplete script.
#####################
#### FOR BASH change THIS (in your .bashrc file)

IFS=$'\n' COMPREPLY=($(COMP_CWORD="$cword" \
COMP_LINE="$COMP_LINE" \
COMP_POINT="$COMP_POINT" \
npm completion -- "${words[@]}" \
2>/dev/null)) || return $?
### TO THIS ( We added an if block, and wrapped the existing in the else block ) ###############################
# if your npm command includes `install`
if [[ ${words[@]} =~ 'install' ]]; then
local cur=${COMP_WORDS[COMP_CWORD]}
# supply autocomplete words from `~/.npm`, with $cur being value of current expansion like 'expre'
COMPREPLY=( $( compgen -W "$(ls ~/.npm )" -- $cur ) )
