Posts about npm

Note: This is a repost of our previous announcement. However if you don't have it already, the Bitbucket NPM add-on is now available in the Atlassian Marketplace.

(Update: The NPM add-on is now available in the Atlassian Marketplace. See the updated version of this post for more details.)

I'm a huge fan of Node.js and npm, so I've built a little npm for Bitbucket add-on that adds module metadata, dependency information and download statistics to the npm modules hosted on Bitbucket. What makes the add-on special is that it's built in a slightly peculiar way: it's 100% static HTML & client-side JavaScript. However, it uses a variety of interesting XHR techniques (CORS, window.postMessage, and API proxying) to exhibit some pretty powerful dynamic behaviour.
