Nodejs is a platform built on Chrome's JavaScript runtime for easily building fast, scalable network applications. It uses NPM as its packaging system.

This hackweek project will create a npm2rpm Ruby gem to fully automate creation of (openSUSE) RPM packages.

As NPM is very picky about versions, this tool will create version-specific RPM files by appending the version number to the package name.

Having nodejs-* packages is a prerequisite for Orientdb-Studio required for this hackweek project

Looking for hackers with the skills:

rpm ruby nodejs

This project is part of:

      The npm2rpm Ruby gem is reasonably functional. See this repository for packaged npm modules.

      Local builds are fine, OBS builds not. Reason is that 'npm' tries a network connection to grab a (locally installed !) package. It will return 304 (Not modified) in local builds but raises a <pre> npm ERR! syscall getaddrinfo npm ERR! code ENOTFOUND </pre> error in OBS.

      NPM needs to be modified to first look at its local cache before reaching out to the Internet.
