Today I Learned

A Hashrocket project

`npm install` without Changing Directories

Today I learned, via this pull request to Tilex, about the --prefix flag to npm install. This could transform an installation script from this:

$ cd assets
$ npm install
$ cd ..

To this:

$ npm install --prefix assets

Hooray for less typing!
