Currently, this project does not support windows.

Two ways of solving this:

  1. Having both .sh and .bat files that are copied into repository.
  2. Rewriting the existing shellscripts to JS instead

Your dependencies will now be installed flat - by default. If possible, all of your dependencies, and their dependencies, and their dependencies will be installed in your project's node_modules folder without nesting. Nesting will only occur when two or more modules have conflicting dependencies.

To think about as well, since windows have a limit on the path names and currently we're nesting dependencies ala npm@2
