Node.js packaging utility
Install NPK globally via NPM:
npm install npk -g
Using command to pack your project:
After packaging, NPK will create a new folder
out for package. You can find out the package in there:
Finally, you can run packaged application directly:
NPK has special and funny options for three levels for packaging your project.
Remove Mock-up (default)
npk [project path]
Mom doesn't recognize
npk [project path] --mom-doesnt-recognize
Dad doesn't recognize
At this level, NPK is packaging your project with C/C++ compiler, to generate a Node.js native module.
npk [project path] --dad-doesnt-recognize
Note that the third level will attempt to compile all things with machine code then saving as a binary file. It means packed application is not going to work on cross-platform. If you need to support several various platform for your project, it must re-package you application on specific platform what you want.
Generating Node.js native module requires C/C++ compiler and Python development. You must install Visual Studio(Express version is fine) and Python 2.7(NOT 3.x) before using "Dad doesn' recognize" option.
