    download-package

    Download the latest version of an npm package to a specified directory

    Installation

        npm install --save download-package

    Example use

    Here's how you would install the latest version of browserify into a packages folder:

        const downloadPkg = require('download-package')
        
        downloadPkg('browserify', `${__dirname}/packages`)
            .then(() => console.log('do other stuff'))
            .catch(() => console.log('there was an error downloading the package'))

    Notes for the above example:

    • The destination folder (./packages) must exist before running downloadPkg
    • The browserify package files will be stored in ./packages/browserify
    • The downloaded browserify package can be 'required' like any other package: require('./packages/browserify')

    Install

    npm i download-package
