npkg is a utility that generates cross-platform installation packages for NodeJS applications
To install node-package, use npm:
$ npm install -g npkg
$ npkg <input folder containing your package.json and app> <output folder (optional)>
Simple as that. If you did everything properly you will now be greeted with an epic success
npkg parses configuration out of your package.json file for the installer.
If you have a LICENSE file they will have to accept it to proceed with the installation
If you have an app.png (Unix) and app.ico (Windows) they will be presented with an option to place desktop icons.
If they are on Unix, NodeJS is downloaded and bundled at the end of the installation
For developers: tar, Java, Python
For consumers: Java
