cd short-jsdoc npm install short-jsdoc --save-dev npm WARN install Refusing to install short-jsdoc as a dependency of itselfAt first I was surprised and I still am because nodejs always install dependencies locally inside the project and so this situation could be managed easily, but on the other side, the user
1) Why would I want foo depend on foo since in foo I already have all the code of foo?
2) If you are publishing a npm module then you should expose a main .js file and you can always require that file using require('./') syntax. That will always work. Thanks
