What’s the feature?
Actually it seems like there is no build-in way to execute binary linking on installation. It would nice to have a way to run
npm link directly after/with
npm install too. Maybe with an additional parameter like
npm install -l .
What problem is the feature intended to solve?
Currently the only way to do this is to execute
npm install and afterward
npm link . It is even no solution to create a custom script, like
npm install && npm link , because then everyone needs to know the call and cant just use
install . It’s not possible to use
npm link too, beacuse this would result in a loop.
Is this feature similar to an existing feature in another tool?
I would say yes. It’s just the execution of
npm link after installation with an parameter on
npm install . No new functionality in general.
