npm + git = gpm - Install NPM packages and dependencies from git repositories.
You can install the package globally and use it as command line tool:
# Using npmnpm install --global gpm# Using yarnyarn global add gpm
gpm --help and see what the CLI tool can do.
$ gpm --help Usage: gpm [options] Options: -i, --input <name|git> The NPM package name or git url. -u, --url-type <type> The git url type to use (e.g. `https`, `ssh`). -t, --destination <path> Where to install the package. -d, --depth <depth> The depth value. Default is Infinity. -h, --help Displays this help. -v, --version Displays version information. Examples: gpm -i git-stats # Installs git-stats and its dependencies from git repositories. gpm -i email@example.com:IonicaBizau/git-stats.git # Does the same, but providing the git url gpm -i . # install the local package dependencies Documentation can be found at https://github.com/IonicaBizau/gpm
For example, if you want to install
git-stats and its dependencies and subdependencies (recursively), do:
$ gpm -i git-stats
This will create the
git-stats repository in the current working directory.
Here is an example how to use this package as library. To install it locally, as library, you can do that using
# Using npmnpm install --save gpm# Using yarnyarn add gpm
// Dependenciesvar Gpm = ;// Install uls and its Node modules from gitvar pack = "firstname.lastname@example.org:IonicaBizau/node-ul.git"// Use httpsurl_type: "https"// Where to install this stuff?dest: __dirname// Clone git repositories for the 3 level depth in dependency treedepth: 2// ul <- typpy// <- deffy <- *typpy//// *–this will not be a git repository;// Start the installpack;
