npm using latest version of package

If you want to use the latest version of a package when using npm create, you need to specify latest as the package version.

It's why most tools will have instructions like below. It's to force npm to install the latest version of the package:

$ npx create-remix@latest
$ npm create svelte@latest
$ npx create-next-app@latest

The above will fetch the latest versions from the registry and execute the script.

If you do not specify a version and have previously installed the package, npm will use that previously installed version.

The same goes with the other npm commands like npm init, npm exec, npx.
