Deploy to npm

I would like to deploy to a private npm registry after a successful build. I am using the build version to bump the package version and make commits and would like it to finally deploy to npm.

The problem is that I need to first call npm adduser

version: 0.0.{build}
  message: /^v(\.?[0-9]+)+$/g       # Regex for matching version commit messages
  - git config --global credential.helper store
  - ps: Add-Content "$env:USERPROFILE\.git-credentials" "https://$($env:access_token)`n"
  - git push
  - npm version %version% -m 'v%version%'
  - npm pack
  # npm adduser ?
  - npm publish

But the npm adduser command is interactive and I don't see a deploy option for npm. Is there any way to deploy npm package from appveyor directly?

    Create adduser.txt text file with 4 lines (4 line is empty):


    Then do:

    npm adduser < adduser.txt

    More about redirecting input:

    It turns out if you do npm adduser and enter the values on your local machine it will create an authtoken in your .npmrc file. Just move that into the repo and then it will work.
