Useful but limited algorithm
As this is a utility for programmers, you’re able to use it to write your own node program. The application is a useful tool for doing this, and once you’ve written the code you can then use a command line to install your package.
Whenever you select an item to install, all of the dependencies will automatically download simultaneously. However, the application’s algorithm may provide a few hiccups while you write nodes or download packages. This is common when installing packages with identical names.
Where can you run this program?
Npm-install is available for computers running Windows 10.
Is there a better alternative?
No, npm-install is one of the best ways to install your packages. However, it’s algorithm is limited, and you may consider alternatives such as Gulp or Yam.
Npm-install is a great way to ensure that you download all dependencies of a package or if you want to write a node-based program.
Should you download it?
Yes. If you want an easy way to download and install packages, then this is a great application.
- Installs packages and their dependencies
- Enables writing node programs
- Installs all modules listed as dependencies
- Algorithm has limitations
