Crashes without bunker installed #59

Perhaps I'm missing something but should bunker be a non-optional dependency?

Console log:

$ npm install -g qunit
/usr/local/bin/qunit -> /usr/local/lib/node_modules/qunit/bin/cli.js

$ qunit -h

$ npm install -g bunker

└── burrito@0.2.12

$ qunit -h

Usage: cli [options] value (boolean value can be used)

 -c, --code path to code you want to test
 -t, --tests path to tests (space separated)
 -d, --deps dependency paths - files required before code (space separated)
 -l, --log logging options, json have to be used
 --cov create tests coverage report
 -h, --help show this help
 -v, --version show module version

Well, the question is why is bunker not installed on your maschine, npm should have tried to install it. Currently its not even in use.


NPM didn't install bunker when I installed qunit. The version of qunit currently in NPM crashes if bunker isn't installed. Bunker is not installed because it's optional in the package.json. I don't know why qunit crashes without bunker installed.


Actually npm installs optional dependencies always, just in case it is not able to install them, it will install the module without this dependency. So normally you are getting bunker installed.



  1. the root reason is you are not getting bunker installed
  2. it is optional, so I can handle this case and don't throw.

…rror if one is trying to use it.
