Import flow via npm

I am quite new to Node-RED and have a question regarding the whole architecture of my project:

Since our flows are quite complex, we want to create them and make them importable via npm-install. This means:
After typing eg " npm install git://" i would like to have the complete flow and all of its dependencies and configurations available in Node-RED GUI.

Is this possible? And if yes, is there some chapter in the doc?

Thank you very much!

While project mode will do some of this, it does not natively do it all I don't believe - since any installed dependencies (nodes) still need to be installed in the master.

It IS possible to do this with a standard install but it takes some tweaking of your package.json file and needs a customised .gitignore file. You will, I think, need a post-install script.
