'You Already Have' package manager for node.js
$ npm install -g yah
Searches for packages installed throughout the system so you don't have to download them again. It's developed to solve the "I have no internet connection so I can't download my packages" problem.
@TODO: finish the 'how it works' section
__You just have to execute
You'll be asked for a workspace directory, like
workspace (the directory where you put your node projects). If you leave it blank, only the default directory where yah put the globally installed modules will be looked up. Then, the program will start searching for
node_modules directories and
package.json files to build up a list with the found modules.
Once the search is finished, the list will be stored in a file called
yah_installed_packages.json in your home directory. I choose not to use an in-memory database because it would be overkill. The program just needs to look for a small list and a single file works just fine.
Once you have the package list, run
yah search <package> and a list with the details of each copy of the package will be displayed.
$ yah search expressYAH Resultsexpress@4.13.0 | mean.js | /firstname.lastname@example.org | my new project | /email@example.com | my old project | /home/user/dev/oldproject
Since the important part of the listing is the package's version, you can run
yah install <package>@<version> and the package with the targeted version will be copyed from the first project listed in the
$ yah install firstname.lastname@example.orgCopying email@example.com from mean.js projectSaving to your package.jsonDone!
You can list all the packages by typing
yah list all. Probably a GIANT OUTPUT will be shown. You can (and I recommend) write it to a file, if you want.
$ yah list firstname.lastname@example.org | mean.js | /email@example.com | my new project | /firstname.lastname@example.org | my old project | /email@example.com | i am grunt | /firstname.lastname@example.org | wow much test | /email@example.com | ive made a promise | /firstname.lastname@example.org | my new project | /email@example.com | should i stay | /home/user/dev/shouldigo[and the list goes on]
Writing output to file (or "don't mess with my terminal")
$ yah list all >> ~/organized_npd_list_all.txt
Important: don't concat it to yah_installed_packages.json or else your list probably will be doomed and you'll end up having to make another one.
