.bin folder without using symbolic links
I’m using npm in a Linux VM on a file system from the Windows host.
Since it does not support symbolic links, I run npm install from windows. But now there is a package that compiles binaries so it does not run in Linux. To avoid creating symbolic links in Linux I can use the --no-bin-links option. But it will create no .bin folder at all. The windows version of npm creates a .bin folder without using symbolic links. It contains script files that can be used in both Windows and Linux!
How can I create a .bin folder containing scripts with the Linux version of npm?
