#11399 closed Bug/Something is broken (fixed)

npm (package manager for Node.js) on ossie

Reported by: Owned by:
Priority: Medium Component: Tech
Keywords: nodejs, npm, packages Cc:
Sensitive: no



Whould it be possible to install this Debian package on ossie?

It would help me to keep ckeditor (full version) up to date.

I would use it like:

$ npm install bower
$ node_modules/bower/bin/bower install ckeditor#full/stable
$ ls bower_components/ckeditor/
$ nice -n 127 ionice --class=idle node_modules/bower/bin/bower update

It is possible but the debian packages for node.js, which includes npm are generally regarded as outdated. You should check if that versions suits your needs. Cc'ing jamie here, he may have another suggestion.

I want to use Drupal 7 Wysiwyg with Ckeditor. I used it for years with Tinymce, but I realize Drupal 8 will have Ckeditor so I better use it for Drupal 7 as well.

I want to be sure to get ckeditor in full/stable version as recommended by following!/guide/dev_package_managers I have not been able to specify "full/stable" with php composer or npm but the commands I listed worked on my development Debian-Jessie computer, with the Bower tool.

I even don't know if Debian package DebianPackage:ckeditor is the full version; I had a look and it looks different from other ckeditor packages, but it may do the job.

I may use git but I do not know how to tell git to take "full/stable"... I tried:

$ git clone --branch full/stable

It looks to download the right files, but I do not know how to make an update... I tried:

$ cd ckeditor-releases/
$ git remote update

I am not sure it does what I am expecting, but it may.

Thanks for you warning! It means that at some point I may not be able to update the Bower tool. I checked Bower webpages and I found no specification about Node.js version required. So I understand anytime new code breaking on old Node.js could be accepted.

I will read jamie's suggestion.

I think the npm is the package you really want (it seems to depend on nodejs). We do include nodejs in our moshes but not npm. Jaime - maybe you could add npm to the mosh list.

See also #10027 and #9180

This is done. npm in stalled in ossie now and will be avilable on all mosh's after the next signed release.
