🌟 packages and resources that work really well with https://github.com/zkat/npx πŸ•Ά

✨ npx itself is awesome

npx lets you execute npm package binaries without installing them. npx is the last thing you need to globally install: > npm i -g npx (this command also updates npx)

Now you can execute tools from npm packages without having to install them globally:

> npx cowsay wow
npx: installed 1 in 1.413s
< wow >
        \   ^__^
         \  (oo)\_______
            (__)\       )\/\
                ||----w |
                ||     ||

you can even use npx to view this list of awesome-npx tools:
