7 like nodejs enough, and npm devs seems to not care about centrally/globally
8 installed packages. There are some npm packages that have to be modified so

10 packages tend to be really small so one package can have a really high
11 number of deps.
13 If anybody is interested in this, check out my repo with npm packages[0]
14 and a really simple g-npm tool[1] to generate ebuilds for them. These tools
15 might be outdated cause I don't use nodejs anymore and I dont care much
16 about it.
18 Feel free to ping me if you have questions.
