In a different directory than NR, I tried installing a node module, separate from NR, # npm install . I got module not found using a require(''). So I did an uninstall, then global install of the module, # npm install -g . This resulted in EACCESS errors. What am I missing, are global install of modules not seen by node js? This lead me to the following qualification, https://docs.npmjs.com/resolving-eacces-permissions-errors-when-installing-packages-globally.
Is any of the above doing to break NR? Is NR variant of npm not installed with a version manager for npm?
