You need to download their source from the github. Find the main file and then include it in your main file.
An example of this can be found here > How to manually install a node.js module?
Usually you need to find the source and go through the package.json file. There you can find which is the main file. So that you can include that in your application.
To include example.js in your app. Copy it in your application folder and append this on the top of your main js file.
var moduleName = require("path/to/example.js")
These modules can't be installed using npm.
Actually you can install a module by specifying instead of a name a local path. As long as the repository has a valid
package.json file it should work.
npm -l and a pretty help will appear like so :
... install npm install <tarball file> npm install <tarball url> npm install <folder> npm install <pkg> npm install <pkg>@<tag> npm install <pkg>@<version> npm install <pkg>@<version range> Can specify one or more: npm install ./foo.tgz bar@stable /some/folder If no argument is supplied and ./npm-shrinkwrap.json is present, installs dependencies specified in the shrinkwrap. Otherwise, installs dependencies from ./package.json.
What caught my eyes was:
npm install <folder>
In my case I had trouble with
mrt module so I did this (in a temporary directory)
Clone the repo
git clone https://github.com/oortcloud/meteorite.git
And I install it globally with:
npm install -g ./meteorite
One can also install in the same manner the repo to a local npm project with:
npm install ../meteorite
And also one can create a link to the repo, in case a patch in development is needed:
npm link ../meteorite
