Install

NPM

  • Install: npm install --save getpackages
  • Module: require('getpackages')
  • Editions

    This package is published with the following editions:

    • getpackages aliases getpackages/index.js which uses Editions to automatically select the correct edition for the consumers environment
    • getpackages/source/index.coffee is Source + CoffeeScript + Require
    • getpackages/esnext/index.js is CoffeeScript Compiled + ESNext + Require
    • getpackages/es2015/index.js is CoffeeScript Compiled + ES2015 + Require

    Older environments may need Babel's Polyfill or something similar.
