In the past when I installed packages using npm(>=1.0) they would be installed locally, but not anymore.
- First I use nvm to install node.js.
- My operating System:
alfred@alfred-laptop:~/node/so/6513101$ cat /etc/lsb-release DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu<br> DISTRIB_RELEASE=10.10 DISTRIB_CODENAME=maverick DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 10.10"
- My node version:
alfred@alfred-laptop:~/node/so/6513101$ node -v v0.4.8
- My npm version:
alfred@alfred-laptop:~/node/so/6513101$ npm -v 1.0.15
Installing random package
alfred@alfred-laptop:~/node/so/6513101$ npm install notifo
In the past it would install into the same directory but it does not install in the same directory anymore. is my npm/node.js broken or am I missing something or does npm not anymore install local packages(inside same folder =>
~/node/so/6513101/node_modules) which I thought was a cool feature because I could
bundle all my dependencies so that other users did not have to install npm to use my code(I still believe users should install npm because it is a great product). The
bundle command is gone so I can't use that? Could someone please explain to me what is going on?

npm walks up the folder tree until it finds a
node_modules or a
package.json and uses that as the root. What does
npm root print out?
mkdir node_modules or create a package.json file, then it'll use the cwd.
EDIT: I won’t see updates you post here. For better results, just post everything in the github issue, and let’s do the support over there.
