Install My Stuff - an opionated npm module installer
npm install -g @mafintosh/ims
IMS is a npm module installer that uses an p2p cache hosted on the Dat network to resolve all dependencies as fast as possible.
The cache is stored in a hypertrie which makes it fast to update and always get the latest version while minimising the amount of roundtrips, compared to
The module tarballs themself are still downloaded from the npm registry
# installs hypercore to ./node_modules ims hypercore

Usage: ims <package-name?> [options] --save, -s saves the dep to package.json --save-dev, -S saves the dev dep to package.json --global, -g installs as a cli tool --production, -p skip dev dependencies If <package-name> is omitted the deps from package.json is used
IMS stores its cache in
Note that it uses sparse files for its database format so use
ls -sh to list the actual size of the cache.
