    1. NPM was not and is still not designed to specifically be a node package manager. Yes it has a lot of useful features supporting node.js (some like node_modules is even hardcoded in node.js) but it actually doesn't care what language your software is written in. It is a package manager for your OS, just like apt and yum (or brew for you Mac users).
