How to disable NPM v6.4.1 install from using softlink

(Yue Chen) #1

If I have a dependencies item: “abc”: “file:./abc” then it won’t actually “installed” into “node_modules”, it just added a softlink, then when I delete the ./abc folder, the node module is disappear.

How can I disable this feature, I just want the abc module is actually installed in node_modules
