It woud be nice to publish in npm simple downloader, as pnantomjs has:

That will simplify life with npm dependencies.

There's no problem with 100% JavaScript modules.

However, C++ modules cannot be installed this way: npm tries to build them with node-gyp, and node-webkit requires them to be built with, because the ABI is different.

≈40 minutes ago I've opened the npm/npm#3244 issue. Maybe that would help. (In the worse case we could try the approach of #458.)


My npm/npm#3244 issue is closed, wontfix.

Fine, now #458 is the only option.


You should take a look at how appjs uses npm install. Take a look at their package.json's scripts properties. They run some cli commands post install and builds them afterwards.

Note that the default version installed is 0.8.6, to get anything newer you need to specify the version

npm install nodewebkit@0.9.2

@johnwclark The latest version tagged on npm is 0.9.2 so npm i nodewebkit should give you that version now.


@shama , thank you
