>"you have to install Node.js "

I always wished there was a version of npm without Node.js. It’s a great tool. But, Node.js is on the way out. The creator of the project is already working on a new replacement (Deno). Someday, maybe we will be able to install npm files without having Node.js installed. If you have an older system, don’t even bother trying to install Node.js… it’s incompatible. You have to go find old versions of software and, after you get it all installed, it bugs you to upgrade to the latest version (which doesn’t work).

So, to summarize: npm is awesome. Node.js…. not so much.
