Adds symlinks to the node_modules dir to fix component require() calls

Why? Cause there's some good, generic and reusable "component" code out there, but the require() calls in component don't quite match up to the calls in NodeJS.


Install the add-component-symlinks executable via npm:

$ npm install -g add-component-symlinks

CLI Examples

The add-component-symlinks executable traverses the node_modules dir and looks inside the installed modules for a component.json file. If a component.json file is found, then a symlink with the component name is added inside the node_modules directory.

$ npm install
$ add-component-symlinks
$ ls -l node_modules/
