How can I check the size of npm packages before downloading?

Is there an online utility or tool that helps me find out the exact size of node packages before downloading or installing them, or is there a way to check the size of the git repos so I can check the size of the package from the git repository

I have created a tool that does this. It's called npm-download-size . A cli version is also available .

Just enter the package name and Go !:

npm download size start page

Analyzed by webpack:

download size of webpack

The cli tool can be installed with

npm i -g download-size


And used like this:

$ download-size lodash
lodash@4.17.4: 303.39 KiB


Below is a demo of asciinema in cli tool.
